Chicks:
Showing the contrast between the partridge colouring and the silver colouring in the young chicks. In a hatch 50% of the chicks will be of one colour 50% of the other

I think that colour wise, the Welsummer DW cocks take some beating but that the Partridge hens knock spots off the DW females.

Excellent looking Cockeral Sandra

Maybe looking to increase my Welsummers this next year, think i will look into the Duckwings they are a stunning looking bird, are there egg / laying any different from other Welsummer types?
