    THANKS everyone who helped me and my daughter get over our panic about the poultry show. my daughter WON [​IMG] [​IMG]!!!!!!!! SHE GOT CHAMPION HEN AND 2ND PL [​IMG] though we think it might be disputed because the judge does'nt know welsummers and might've gotten confused by a ameracacaus hen that looks very simular. we'll see. now we're gearing up for the tulsa state fair, our only hold up is pullurum testing (don't think i spelled that right), anyway, if any of my fellow oakies can help me with that i would be grateful. every body have a good day

    Congratulations. What fair did you win? Also I didn't know you had Welsummers. I sold most of mine last year but I really love the ones I kept. I wish I had kept them all. If you ever have any to sell please let me know.

    yeah their new, for my daughter, she showed in shawnee, the pottawatomie free fair. hope you were'nt the judge?
    might be disputed cause the judge did'nt know welsummers and might've gotten confused by a ameracacaus hen that looks very simular

    i mean he might know welsummers but he looked very perplexed. anyway i got them in newalla, my daughter plans on breeding but i would have to get a roo their just so high. we thought about using THE BARON but i kinda want to keep pure don't know i'll keep you posted.​

    I was not the judge. I know a guy that has Welsummers. I just bought a new rooster from him. His prices are very good. I don't know if he has any more grown ones but I am sure he has some cockerals. He lives north of Harrah. He is actually the guy I traded my other hens to last year.
    He has some beautiful blue cochins and I traded for a quad of those. I ended up loaning them to a lady that was going to raise and hatch them for a split. Unfortunatly something got in the pen and killed them.
    Anyway I'll ask him when I talk to him.
    How many hens do you have? Let me know if the guy you got them from has more.

    i have 2 pullets the guys name is lawrence, it might be the same really nice man. for someone on a reeeeaaalllly tight budget, and got most of her flock for free i thought it was high but VERRRRRY worth it, he has some cochins and silkies i'm in love with. i don't no if he has more, sure would like to get a cockrel bout the same age as my pullits before spring, i just gotta save money. i'll email you his number.
