Swedish Flower Chickens, are so named due to the white
or black flecks/flowers on the tips of their feathers. The breed
was close to extinction in the 1970s, however a few enthusiasts
found an adequate amount of survivors to create a sufficient
gene pool, to thankfully ensure the continuation of the breed.
The base colouring varies from black to yellow, red or blue,
all which have the black or white flecks/flowers as mentioned
Some may also have a small coif on the top of their heads. No two Swedish Flower Chickens are the same, which makes them all the more unique and for the chicken lovers amongst us, rather endearing.
An adult hen generally weighs between 2 to 2.5kg, they are very hardy specimens. The breed itself is very robust and copes well with cold winters. (Which appear to be becoming the norm in the UK of late.) They are calm, pleasant natured birds which are well suited to a free range or large pen environment. Each hen will reward you with up to 200 eggs a year, these eggs have a beautiful cream coloration and weigh around 60 grams. Egg laying does continue into November however the production does decrease at this time.
