After looking at our lineup of unique birds you may ask why we choose to include Welsummers in our breeding program. The quality of the Welsummer breed varies GREATLY when it comes to feathering and egg laying beauty. We choose to breed Heritage Welsummer for eggs that are speckled with large pronounced dark speckle patterns because no other chicken lays in quite the same pattern and with as high of frequency as our Wellies.
Laying over 250 eggs a year, our line of Welsummers is a mix of two breeders from different states that have been carefully breeding their lines to produce this speckling effect while creating healthy and robust birds. We keep Welsummers in our general egg laying flock because they can easily compete with the laying ability of any rhode island red or pearl leghorn while maintaining a more docile personality.
