Welsummer Qualities

Welsummers are best known for their dark brown, speckled eggs, as well as their red partridge color. This makes them great as layers and equally as great as show birds. One thing to note, when selecting eggs for breeding, it is better to pick a lighter-colored egg rather than a dark brown egg. The reason for this is that a good layer will begin laying lighter and lighter-colored eggs, whereas a dark brown egg will signify poor laying and will result in a chick that will perpetuate this poor laying.

Welsummer Temperament

Welsummers are an all-around simple and friendly breed. Hens can become broody late in the spring, but otherwise are easy to get along with.

Welsummer Appearance

Welsummers have just the single red comb atop their head with bodies built for egg laying. The males have tails held fairly high while the hens have folded tails that accentuate their laying status. Their eyes have a dark red coloring surrounding them and their legs are yellow, though the color will slowly fade the more eggs they lay until they are eventually a pale white.

Welsummer Upkeep

Welsummers do best when they have a large yard to roam around. While the added space may seem like a bother, they make up for this by their excellent foraging abilities, meaning they practically feed themselves. Egg production drops significantly in the winter, so make sure to provide them with a nice warm coop.
