Verified Reviews for Welbar
Large fowl not easy to find. Bantams becoming more popular. Newly re-founded Autosexing Breeders Association can be enormously helpful and put people in touch. Lovely friendly and gentle little souls. You can order pullets 100% sex guaranteed at hatch.
LOVELY & EASY TO START WITH - Derrick,
Got fed up with temperament of Welsummer Bantam Cockerels and ran a Welbar Bantam Cockerel - sadly first back-cross only gives you pure Welbar Pullets and the Cockerels are X-Bred. Pullet temperament follows sire, though, what little sweeties!!!!
WHY ARE THESE NOT MORE POPULAR - Derrick, Northamptonshire,
Nice friendly bantams that are extremely hardy. Cannot understand why they aren't more popular.
I like it - An Omleteer,
This is a very good chicken I would like to buy.
Lovey Non Agressive Birds - An Omleteer,
I started keeping Welbars last year (2008). These birds are rare and having got welsummers already thought it would be nice to help this similar breed along. The hens are a paler version of the welsummer but slightly more stocky and lay similar eggs.The cockrels are totally different from the welsummer, but equally as stunning. Also the males are very placid even with each other if they have been together since hatch. It would be nice if people bred more of these lovely birds.
