    I live in TX, and planning to make an order with Ideal. I was just wondering if anyone has ever gotten any
    Welsummers from them? and what did they think about them?

    I got 2 Welsummers last April from Ideal and I am really happy with them. They both started laying about a month ago and I like the egg color. I traded one to a friend so she could get some dark eggs also. Yesterday and got a nice large dark egg.

    Here is Willow at about 5 months. She has filled out a lot since then.

    And here is a pic of some of my eggs from a few weeks ago. The Welsummer eggs are the 3 darker ones in the middle. The eggs have continued to get a more solid darker color since.

    sunangel,
    where did those blue eggs come from? i also am interested in getting some welsummers from ideal this spring. no one around here has any, and i think that i could become a local breeder for the dark egg layer.

    Quote:The blue eggs are pullet eggs from my Splash and Blue Ameraucanas. They just started laying a few weeks ago, but the egg color is pretty.
