Each chick has a 50/50 chance of being male or female.
Extremely rare and beautiful, we are thrilled to be offering these birds to you all as part of our 2020 breed lineup! We have our own line of Double Silver Laced Barnevelders we have named the “Alchemist Line” which you will find no where else in the United States.
Our line of barnies are 1/8 large fowl and the rest bantam the marriage of the two created a bird that is slightly smaller than a medium framed bird. Our line of Double Silver Laced Barnevelders give generously sized shiny cream to tan eggs while boasting the same exquisite lacing pattern. We choose to do this cross because as with many rare breeds introduced into the United States the gene pool is limited and immunity can be an issue. We are a farm that is committed first and foremost to creating robust healthy chicks, you can expect the same quality you have come to know from this beautiful line.
As with all of the breeds we work with, the personality on the Barnevelders is extremely docile around humans. The roosters are gentlemen with the hens and dutifully protect them from hawks.
