    I am intending to add a new pen/coop this winter with the intention of raising a few Welsummer chickens. Is there a reputable breeder here in Texas (preferably north central Texas!) selling newly hatched chicks?

    I will be wanting 20-25 pullets and a couple of roosters. I've done a bit of research and this turned up as the breed I decided I would like to have. (I currently have 9 pullets of 3 breeds: 4 Americaunas, 3 Silver-Laced Wyandottes, and 2 Black Australorps.) While I'm keeping these ladies, I want to add a separate flock of a single breed, and the Welsummer is the one!

    Thank you, Jeff. I just sent her a private email, asking if she still produces the Welsummers. Now all I can do is wait for an answer.

    What kind of chickens do you have? (Im just nosey!)[​IMG]

    I'd forgotten over the years just how much fun they are to have. I'm glad I got into chickens this year. (My previous one was a pet Dominique, or Dominecker, as I was told then. I was 9 when I had her.) Can't wait for them to get big enough to lay! (Although with the year winding down, it may be next spring before I get any! That's OK, too.)
