I think I would like to move in the direction of welsummers... I like dark brown eggs and I would like to keep a chicken that is endangered. And I want them to be according to breed standards, if I'm going to keep an endangered breed I want it to be a good quality bird. Also, I think the welsummers are beautiful, exactly what a backyard chicken should look like (IMO!). So I would love to hear from anyone who keeps them, I'd love more information than the regurgitated wikipedia info that seems to be on every web page I can find. Are they good egg layers, even in winter? Are they calm or flighty (i've read both)? are they a good dual-purpose breed? Good chickens for a 4 year old who's obsessed with them? Any personal info that you have from your own experiences would be great! Thank you!
