    Does anyone know of a source for Maran and Welsummer pullets? I am looking for decent quality pullets (don't have to be show quality) but can't afford to spend a ton getting them. I am mostly looking for them for the egg color.

    Meyer Hatchery in Ohio has both, but there may be a source closer to you.

    Murray McMuray in Iowa has Marans, but straight run only. They didn't have Welsummers last I checked.

    I got mine from Estes Hatchery and was real happy with the service and I'm thrilled with the dark egg color I'm getting.
