Does anyone have any Welsummer hatching eggs for sale? I rather like the look of this breed but....

I have Light Sussex hens and successfully hatched eggs last year of which I sold all the cocks including my original LS coq. Ideally I would like to hatch a coloured breed this year predominantly for egg laying but of which, if I kept a resulting coq chick, would then go on to breed with the sussex and produce auto-sexing chicks. Apart from the obvious RIR, does anyone recommend a particular breed?

Hi Susie, Sussex X Maran will produce auto sexing chicks but I think I'm right in saying that in order to get auto sexed chicks you need to cross the other way round, i.e. Light Sussex cock on Maran hens. If you want a cock just to produce you good egg laying hens I have a couple of Copper Black Maran cocks for sale and I'm not far from you. I'm at St. Remy sur Lidoire. I also have a spare Speckled Sussex cock and a young couple of the same.

When buying the hens make sure you don't buy any with a gypsy face as they're crossed with one of the other French breeds and you end up with chicks of all colours from off white through grey to black! If you can find the hens with a red blush to the throat and breast even better. If you don't find a cock I have one here.

I thought it was the other way around. I have read on many sources that with the RIRs it is the RIR coq x LS hens to create the auto-sexing chicks. I assumed that it would be the same way round with other breeds too, although you seem to be the expert so I will bow to your knowledge.

I have had copper black Marans hens before, so I may consider your offer.

Gypsy faced is when the wattles and comb are dark purple not bright red. Sumatras and some game breeds have it and I suppose you could say Silkies too. They also tend to have a black eye.

Hi Everyone
I now have Speckled Sussex, Croad Langshan and Buff Colombian Brahma eggs for sale. I will also have a few Indian Game eggs next week. The other breeds are slowly coming into lay but they don't think much of this cold weather!

Thank you Jeanette, but as you can see from my signature I have since acquired a Welsummer coq and now have some Welsummer x Sussex eggs in the incubator.
