    I don't know if there is a Welsummer Association but there are two nice yahoo groups that deal with them.
    [email protected] and
    [email protected]

    I raise them but I don't have enough to where I am able to sell eggs or chicks. I sell locally. I have a few friends that have them as well.
    They are my favorite breed of chickens.

    I believe Opa is breeding/selling eggs.

    Also, Mothergoose.

    My son and I breed them. We are going to be selling fertle eggs as soon as the hens start laying better. Not enough hours in the day for them yet. But we are getting some nice dark eggs and my hens hare show champions.

    I breed and show my Welsummers as well. Saw your request Chantecler but didn't reply because I'm not sure what the requirements are for shipping eggs or chicks across the line.

    God Bless,
