A few years ago I had a Welsummer cock and a couple of CLB hens in the egg flock - my little X breed bantam went broody so I put some of their eggs under her to see what would happen - the result was all the pullets ended up looking like Welsummers (with little crests on their heads
). I still have a couple of them and they lay Welsummer coloured eggs, just not quite so dark.
love me, love my 4 dogs, 3 cats, over 100 chickens (but don't tell OH) and 7 sheep - oops, almost forgot the 2 tanks of fish!
I live in my own little world but it's ok - they know me here!
