Welsummer

RARE BREED

Welsummer chickens are a cold hardy bird of Holland descent.    Bred in the early 1900’s, the hens are partridge type coloring while the roosters are darker with a rustic red-orange saddle on their back.   The Welsummer hen lays large eggs which are a terracotta dark brown, often with dark speckles.   They are a light, friendly, and intelligent breed.   Like the Marans the Welsummer tends to be more athletic, taking to foraging and free ranging more often than other breeds.
