vorwerk hens

Recommended Posts


I'm about to start keeping hens. I've seen some pictures of vorwerk hens and have fallen in love with them. Ive found a place that sellls them, but I cant find out any info about them, theres nothing on Omlet. Does anybody know them? I was wanting to know what their personality is like, are they good for pets? ALso, do they lay many eggs?

Hope somebody can help me.

Chris Graham's 'Choosing and keeping chickens' says: developed as a medium sized utility fowl, economical eater, mild mannered and straightforward to keep. Depending on breeding lines, should lay 170 cream or tinted eggs in a season. They are adaptable and will do well under almost any conditions, but they can fly.


The chicken encyclopaedia says: lively, active, not shy and can become reasonably tame. Fast growers, very vigorous, white eggs.


Sound great if you have found a supplier! 8)

I have a Vorwerk and she is absolutely lovely. She hasn't started laying yet, but is one of the friendliest of my hens and always comes to chat to me when I am in the run.She has a very distinctive voice and is very fond of perching on top of the Cube. She looks stunning too. I would definitely recommend the breed.

Hi Tweety,

You say you've got a vorwerk. How long have you had her? I've been a bit put off about getting them coz I've read that they are good flyers and like to be free range. If I had them they would be in a run 6' x 12'. Do you know how many eggs they are likely to lay. ALso, you say you/ve only got one? Ive read that they are best off in pairs of a single breed, coz they like to hang out with the same breed? what do you think?
