I heard a few voices saying that the Welsumer stock from the larger hatcheries might not be very good. So, I'm hoping the get your opinions on that topic. I really would like to add a couple to my flock next spring and would like to start them from hatchlings. I can't afford straight run, as I don't want any additional roosters and don't know anybody who does. With that, I'm afraid, I would have to go with a larger hatchery that can sex the chicks. I would, however only buy any if someone has anything good to say.
