Description

The Welsummer chicken is a Dutch breed named after the village of Welsum in Holland.  Developed in the 1900’s it was first imported into this country in 1928 for its large brown egg.  The Welsummer eggs will vary in tints of dark brown eggs and most of the eggs will have a real dark speckled pigment in the egg shell.  The Welsummer is a large, upright, active bird with a broad back, full breast, large full tail and a single comb.  Welsummers have a docile and friendly personality.  The famed Kellogg’s Rooster was a Welsummer chicken.  The Welsummer roosters are glorious with their beautiful shades of red and black.  They are a fast growing bird and a very rare breed here in the United States.
