The Barnevelder chicken originates from the Barneveld region of Holland and known for laying a dark brown egg. This beautiful bird has a single comb, is hardy and quiet and doesn’t mind being confined. The breed was first recognized by the American Standard of Perfection in 1991. The breeding stock will produce feathering of partridge single laced and double laced feather patterns. Each year breeding season our objective is to breed more for the double laced pattern. They were bred to lay well, even in the long damp Northern European winters. Barnevelders are very rare in the United States which makes them quite desirable and highly sought after. They are slow to mature but make a good dual purpose breed.
