Welsummer Chicken

The Welsummer Chicken originated in Holland in the early 20th century, and is part of the elite class of Dark Brown Egg Laying Chickens. The breed was originally created by crossing many popular varieties of dual purpose chicken breeds like Cochins, Wyandottes, Leghorns, Barnvelders, and Rhode Island Reds.

Welsummer Chickens have similar characteristics to many other popular heavy breed egg laying chickens - hardiness, excellent egg laying ability, dual purpose meat utility, and beautiful plumage - but what sets this breed apart are the beautiful chocolate colored eggs. These excellent egg layers are fairly early maturing, and they can be extremely cold hardy, laying fairly regularly throughout winter during their prime laying years. They are not dependable brooders or setters, but will sometimes hatch out a nest of their own without need of an incubator.

Both male and female Weslummer Chickens are beautifully colored. The males have rich golden brown head, neck, and saddle feathers with a small to average sized single comb. The tail, sickles and wing covert feathers are an iridescent black and the back feathers between neck and saddle are a deep bronze or reddish color. The female has a similarly colored golden brown head with copper colored hackles. The covert feathers are a black edged brown that fade to black toward the tail, and the breast and thigh plumage is a a deep orangish red color.

Welsummer Chicks doing very well July 27, 2015
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Midland, VA United States  
I bought 25 Welsummer Chicks  all plus one came in alive and well.  All are doing great and seem very healthy.  I have been purchasing from McMurray Hatchery and have had several losses recently along with a chick that had a badly deformed beak.  I will most certainly purchase from efowl again in the future.

beautiful little roos! July 24, 2015
Reviewer: Kirsten Snow from Brazil, IN United States  
I ordered 25 chicks this spring for delivery this summer.  There were some problems with the hatches of some of my birds and so I did not get exactly what I ordered.  I was refunded immediately (or I could have chosen to keep it on account for my next order.)  The chicks that I did get were feisty, chirpy, wiggly little balls of fluff.  They also included 4 extra birds to help make up for the short hatch.  I have lost two chicks for no obvious reason, and the two were both buff or ping ton pullets.  Every other bird is doing great and growing fast!  I have ordered chicks in the past and have never lost a single one, and the pullets have grown into some truly record breaking egg layers.  (Both size and frequency!)
