The Barnevelder is a Dutch breed of domestic chicken. It resulted from cross-breeding between local Dutch chickens and various "Shanghai" birds imported from Asia to Europe in the later part of the nineteenth century; these may have been of Brahma, Cochin or Croad Langshan type. It is named for the town and gemeente (municipality) of Barneveld, in Gelderland in the central Netherlands. One of the rare breeds of chickens where the females are more stunning than males. Their distinctive double laced plumage makes them knock out. The hens are good layers of brown eggs and, unlike some other breeds, continue to lay well during winter. We have bantams in Double silver laced
We offer hatching eggs and juveniles when available.
