  3. Hi everyone In the end I decided on a welsummer and a Wheaton maran they seem OK the welsummer seems the most docile the maran seems shy and my small legvar hybrid seems to be on top they have not started to lay yet and I look forward to when they do. This is one of my first forum posts and I'm so so happy with all the replies. So thank yiu very much. I again thank you for your replys. Will Ps I have attached the picture of the new hens ( they are camera shy)

  12. Thank you for that I would love a bantam welsummer but I cannot find one so I will probably get the standard size. I would love a rainbow egg basket. I currently have a legbar that lays blue eggs. I'm looking for two more hens I would like some unusual coloured eggs but the hens must have a good tempermant and lay at least 160 eggs a year it also must be readily available in the UK. Any suggestions?

I look forward to your replys! Will
