    I just read where someone said the welsummer's breeding was so bad that he culled them. Someone else said they ordered 7 welsummers and got 9 sexlinks.

    I was going to order from welp hatchery just for the welsummers, i cant find them anywhere else. I am in ohio and welp ships out of new mexico. What should I do?

    I got mine from Ideal. I can't say they're high quality though. I love them and they're great layers but that's about it.

    I'd look for breeders or hatcheries closest to you and start making a few phone calls. You can find a list of hatcheries by state and breeders by breed at www.CountryChickens.com.

    Good luck!

    Thank you all so much for replying to me. So helpful. Meyers wont have any until August and you cant order them yet until they know for sure the hatch dates. I will check out that website. Thanks again.
