    Calmest, nicest birds that I have. I have three young cockrels and three year old hens in a small pen. They get along good and I have never had a problem with any of them.
    Here is a picture from several weeks ago.

    My Wellsummers are my favorite dark egg layers Hands down. They are the best layers! I am getting 5-6 eggs a (week) [​IMG] from my two girls and they are still dark and speckled! Just Beautiful Eggs! [​IMG] I will get the picture off my camera soon and post it on this thread. Glad you started this one up. Shhh I much prefer Wellsummers to Marans [​IMG]

    Edited because Im a dummy [​IMG]

    I have to agree on the egg laying abilities. Mine always have eggs for me, every day. I agree, I MUCH prefer welsummers to marans, much better temperment. I had two of my own welsummer chicks hatch tonight [​IMG] . I will get pictures tomorrow, if I get the chance.

    I have no Wellsummers but they are at the top of my list to get in the spring! I have already told and showed my wife what the next chickens will be. She said that was fine as long as I get her some Silkies at the same time;)

    My Welsummers are some of the best layers I have. I am getting eggs almost every day from my 2 Welsummers. Most of the other breeds have slowed way down or stopped for the winter but these two just keep on laying. They would make the Everyredy bunny proud! [​IMG]

    I have noticed that my Welsummers seem to be the smartest of all the breeds in my flock.

    I am going to add 20 to 25 chicks to my flock this April. 3 - 5 of these will be Welsummers.
