Welsummer are a beautiful, curious breed of chicken. The large, brown and speckled eggs will add variety and texture to your egg basket. Welsummer hens can be expected to lay between 150-250 eggs per year. We notice that our ladies seem to be on the higher end of that spectrum, only taking a break during their molting season. They do very well in a mixed flock and are excellent foragers. If I had to choose a breed of chicken for my personal favorite, the Welsummer would definitely be in the running for first place. Several of our Welsummer hens lay an egg with a lovely pink to purple bloom over it. This adds a whole new color level of excitement to your daily egg collection!
