    I would LOVE a Welsummer rooster!But that is on the back burner. I love my BO's, too! They are super sweet and lovey. One actually turned out to be a rooster (there went my big plans to name them after the Golden Girls), and even HE is super sweet. Turned out to be my favorite. They moved into their coop last night and I swear I have separation anxiety! I miss my Stanley Roosterface so bad. We had a ritual every evening where he'd sit in my lap on the front porch while I bragged about him and the girls on instagram. #nerd

    My husband and I are relatively new to chickens — just about two years in now! We've acquired a mixed bag. So far we have:
    Three easter eggers
    Three barred rocks
    One speckled sussex
    A buff orpington cross
    A leghorn/ameraucana cross
    A silkie/welsummer cross

    And our rooster, I believe, is a Chantecler mix. He is wonderful — very well-behaved and takes superb care of his ladies!

    Our silkie/welsummer hatched out an olive egger and two speckled sussex two weeks ago, and our leghorn/ameraucana is sitting on eight copper maran eggs!

    Chickens are so addictive and so much fun.
