Welsummer Chickens

Welsummer chickens originate from The Netherlands, in a small village named Welsum, and come in three varieties – Partridge, Silver Duckwing and Gold Duckwing – ours are the Partridge variety.

The Welsummer is a medium sized chicken and is another breed that lays a nice large dark terracotta brown egg, around 180 in a year. They’re extremely friendly and intelligent, being great for back gardens or free-ranging alike, and are easy to handle. Personally I think they’re beautiful!
