About Welsummer Chickens


These Welsummers have been selectively bred for their utility qualities, and more specifically for egg colour and size. They are an ideal breed for keeping in your back garden, being friendly in nature, with the bonus of laying amongst the largest and deepest terracotta brown eggs you will come across, weighing between 65g and 80g. The egg size/colour will of course vary, and cannot be guaranteed. You can expect them to keep laying for five to eight years, although there are many recordings of Welsummer hens continuing to lay for 10 to 12 years.
