    I love my Welsummers. I keep a Welsummer Roo with my hens. Both roosters that I've had have been protective of their girls, but not overly aggressive. They lay a decent number of eggs that are so beautifully dark.
    I have a few Speckled Sussex too. They're probably my second favorite. I just love how they look. They've been good layers too with pleasant personalities.

    Whoot whoot! my Patriots won! i wa jumping and doing my happy dance like tom brady! jumped off the couch and did the exact same thing. Amnd i was thinking about the game wherre they so called "cheated." it was cold air, the balls could have deflated. My wheels in my bike deflate sometimes, why not a football. People need to stop pointing fingers. The teams don't provide the balls.... or is that wrong?

    Thats great. We arent allowed to have roosters, only hens....would you think Welsummer's are good show birds?

    ^^^I don't know anything about showing. However, when I was at the Canfield Fair this summer, I don't think there were any Welsummers. That's a pretty big county fair, so it gives you an idea how rare they are.
