The German Verheyden hens are maturing very nicely and their plumage are goreous! Very elegant I might say!
You can see the difference of the egg shell color of Welsummer Bantams on your left and the Welsummer LF on the right.
This picture above are the Welsummer chicks hatched on March 30, 2009 and got eight chicks, four pullets and three cockerals and one questionable chick. The so called markings between females and males are all wrong....ended up having only two pullets.
See the differences from left to right: Orpington Bantam tinted egg, German Verheyden egg (middle) and Dutch Amestein egg on right.
I do have a couple of Welsummer Bantam breeders that I can refer you that have German lines , Dutch lines or both. Feel free to email me and I would be happy to refer you to them.
No offense to many of you, We are reserving the BEST and SERIOUS breeders, not a money making scheme business and we do have the right NOT to sell you any eggs or birds if we feel that you may not fit or have similiar goals in preserving the Welsummer Bantams. After all, we want the best in quality, and working toward the quality rather than quantity that the type and egg color would be lost in future generations due to careless manners.There are too many people out there that wanted to MAKE money and it is just not the way to go.
UPDATE: Will not be having any more Welsummer Bantams . However you can contact me if you want buy hatching eggs from Bantam breeders.
You can check out the WCNA website to find bantam breeders close to you.
