Welsummers are a Dutch breed that originated from Holland in the early twentieth century. Taking it's name from the village of Welsum, this breed was produced by a local farmer who lived there. It was said this farmer crossed the Barnevelders with other native birds to obtain a stable cross. The Welsummer is also thought to be made up of Danish Brown Leghorns and Marans. The American Poultry Association Standard for this breed calls for a clean leg. However, many lines of Welsummers exhibit a light feathering on the leg. 
Welsummers are the perfect chicken in my opinion.  They are a very sociable, easily handled, and are beautiful for the barnyard. They tend to become very tame. They are a very calm, talkative bird. They lay a beautiful terra cotta brown egg.
