    On the standard it says yellow legs and feet, black toes. It doesn't say anything about nails. Maybe that's what they mean are toes?

    I defer to the better informed eggdd. Location matters!

    Welsummer legs, feet and toes are to be yellow. The U.S. Standard does not mention anything about the color of toenails, but I have been breeding Wellies for 4 years and all of my birds have toenails the same color as the toes, feet and legs. I have never seen Wellies with black toenails.

    Here is a link to the Welsummer Club North America and the SOP for Wellies.

    Hope this helps. Merry Christmas!


    Edited to say: Sorry for double posting the link to the WCNA....I did not see that it had already been posted. [​IMG]

    Toenail color is not mentioned in the UK standard either. [​IMG]
