I have 5 Welsummers to be delivered on the 17th, but have heard mixed reviews about them. I originally wanted Black Coppers, but the place we ordered from did not sell Black Coppers. Should I keep looking for black coppers or will the Welsummers make good family pets? I have a little 18 month old tricycle motor that loves critters which is one of the reasons we decided on getting chickens. The other reason being....eggs!!
