Update of the goings on at High Ground Farm


Welsumer hens are just beginning to lay. This heritage breed was originally from Holland. They lay very dark brown eggs, often speckled with darker spots, and splotches. They are gentle, inquisitive hens. Often they come over to inspect as I fill the feeders, and tidy up the chicken barn. They are very special girls.

I love welsummers. I am trying to be patient while waiting for my new Welsummers to start. They are 3 and 4 months old, so I have some time to go. I will be keeping a breeding group of 5 girls and Tonk.
