Welsummer Chickens


The Welsummer is a single comb, clean legged variety that originated in Holland. This bird has a docile temperament, is cold hardy and is known for its good production of a dark brown egg. The plumage of the males is very different from the plumage of the females. The male's saddle, head and neck feathers are rich golden brown while the back, wing front and wing bows are bright reddish brown. Each feather of the back of the females is reddish brown, stippled with black and has a distinct lighter shaft.
