I got some Welsummers from Ideal last August, and I am really disappointed. They are little (When researching, I thought I remembered they were a midsized bird), lay small eggs (again remember reading they lay medium sized eggs )and NONE of the eggs are even a little bit dark. No dark speckles, nothing, just cream colored eggs. I got an oops Barnevelder too (she was supposed to be a Wellie) and she was laying nice dark good sized eggs with extra dark speckles..and now...just plain ol creamy colored eggs from her too. (She is quite a bit larger than the Welsummers. ) Bummed. I knew not to expect much since they are hatchery stock, but I at least thought I would get some light eggs with dark speckles...sigh. Oh well. They are sweet litle things. I guess that's somethin', hunh?
