    Shipped all the way from from Tennessee, my friend James from Skyline Poultry surprised me with a box of Isabel Welsummer chicks. I was very touched by such a generous gift, and am quite excited to see this little fluffs grow.

    Egg color is almost at optimal. Picture is showing the comparison to my Cottage Hill Line of French Black Copper Marans. I can't wait till they fill out for you Carolyn. You'll really be impressed with the blossoming of colors they'll display.
