    Trying to decide which is the better supplier of chicks. Please let me know if you have Wellies from either of these places.

    And, do you like them? I would love to see pictures of eggs.......

    Thanks!

    There is a huge Welsummer thread on this site (shouldn't be hard to find. Look in the topic "chicken breeds"?)
    The folks on there are very knowledgable and super friendly, I bet they can answer your question [​IMG]

    Here are some pics of welsummer eggs and the lines they came from. My pictures are there as well, although I didn't get mine from either Estes or Whitmore. The breeder I got them from had mostly Barber lines with a couple hens from Whitmore.

    I love my wellies. The birds are gorgeous, the eggs are nice and dark, and I love the speckles they can have on them too.
