Standard Double Laced Barnevelder

Another breed developed by the Dutch, the Barnevelders have a long history with a lot of different breeds being used to create their very unique look. The double lacing looks spectacular in any color. Barnevelders are large birds, but also excellent layers of dark brown eggs, although the eggs have lightened up a bit through many ages of breeding, as the breedings were concentrating more on the coloring of the birds, not maintaining the darkness of the eggs. They are known for being excellent winter layers as well. They are quiet birds, and great foragers. Currently, we have a gorgeous double laced blue rooster, and black, blue, and splash hens. We love having these beautiful birds as part of our flock!
