Please see our Welsummer Breed Page for more information on this breed.
Our Welsummer breed is the only breed we can sex as chicks. They are not considered sex linked, but our line of Welsummers are bred to have more distinct feather patterns when female than our males. When available, we will offer our chicks as sexed. Please use the drop down menu to make your sex selection, or select the "straight run" option if you'd like a mix of both sexes.
