    Well, the breeds section says Welsummers bear confinement well. I love mine, but we're still waiting for eggs.

    Mine does good in her coop but she is the first one to the door in the morning complaining to go out and she is VERY vocal

    Turns out I got the call before I was able to read any one's replys.

    I am now the proud owner of a 5 month old Cuckoo Marans
