Barnevelders are a medium heavy breed of bird named after the dutch town, Barneveld. They are hardy birds and good foragers.This docile breed seems to be one of the easiest birds to keep out of our flock. The cockerels learn to crow later than usual meaning they are quieter than a lot of our other trios! Renowned for their good egg laying qualities with a nice brown egg. We have one blue laced cockerel running with two gold laced hens, this will give you equal opportunity for both colours in the offspring. We have had incredibly high fertility rates with this trio with strong healthy chicks produced every time.
