About The Welsummer Club:

The Welsummer club was established in 1930 and exists to promote the Welsummer breed of poultry.

We are the only official club representing the Welsummer breed and we are affiliated to 'The Poultry Club of Great Britain'.

Our patron is His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales.

The club's objectives include to encourage and improve the breeding of Welsummers for utility purposes and to maintain the size and rich brown colour of the Egg which is so characteristic of the breed. We will render every possible assistance to members in connection with the breeding of Welsummers.

Subscriptions are currently £7.50 per year, but this is subject to annual review. Upon joining the club, you will receive a copy of the yearbook and occasional newsletter.

The Welsummer club welcomes new members including those from outside the UK.

The Welsummer club has one club show which is held at the National Poultry Show in Telford and seven Regional shows which include the following:

Federation Championship show

Scottish National Regional show

Irish National Regional show

Devon Fanciers Regional show

High Peak Regional show

Ulster Poultry Federation Regional show

Great Yorkshire Regional show

(the Great Yorkshire Regional show includes the Welsummer club egg show).
