Description:

The Welsummer (sometimes spelled Welsumer) is named after the village of Welsum, Holland, and was first imported into this country in 1928.

When many people picture the stereotypical rooster, a Welsummer is what they have in mind--this was the same rooster featured on the corn flake boxes! Their hackles and saddles are fiery burnt orange and scarlet, with beetle black tails iridescently shining green, like the bars on their wings. The hens are modest, heathery brown, with their hackles shading to glints of gold and black. Even their eyes are a lovely red bay.

The birds have single combs, medium wattles, almond shaped ear lobes and a strong, short beak.

Welsummers are friendly, intelligent and easily handled birds that love to free range and forage for food but can also be kept in runs quite happily.

Average mature weight:
Roosters 34 oz., Hens 30 oz.
