The Welsummer Chicken, also known as Welsumer, is a unique breed hailing from the quaint village of Welsum in the eastern Netherlands. This breed is renowned for its egg-laying prowess, consistently producing 200-280 medium to large-sized eggs annually. The eggs are distinctively dark brown, adding a touch of variety to any egg basket. Welsummer chickens are recognized for their active nature and are primarily bred for egg production.

Originating from Holland, the Welsummer chicken boasts a recognition by the American Poultry Association (APA) since 1991. This acknowledgment is a testament to the breed’s quality and adherence to standards. The breed showcases a balanced size, with roosters weighing around 7lbs and hens approximately 6lbs, making them a well-proportioned bird suitable for various poultry enthusiasts. Their participation in the Continental Class during shows further highlights their esteemed status.

In terms of behavior, Welsummer chickens display a tendency to occasionally go broody. This characteristic can be an advantage for those interested in naturally expanding their flock. Their brooding nature, coupled with their active temperament, makes them a dynamic addition to any farm or backyard setting. The combination of these traits – prolific egg-laying, recognized standards, and occasional broodiness – makes Welsummer chickens a versatile and valuable breed for both egg production and ornamental purposes.
