Description:

One of the prettiest feather plumage of all chicken breeds, as well as almost an impossible color to find, Feather Lover Farms was able to acquire unrelated breeding flocks of Silver Double Laced Barnevelder from Greenfire Farms new imported bloodline. This rare color comes in bantam and large fowl and our flocks consist of half large fowl and half bantam. Making a medium sized Silver Double Laced Barnevelder, perfect for small coops and also large enough eggs to eat. Infusing both the large fowl and bantam also helped diversify their genetic gene pool for an extremely healthy unrelated breeding program

Barnevelder chickens were developed as a dual purpose breed in Holland over 200 years ago. Created by crossing Dutch chicken breeds with Asian chicken breeds known as Shanghai chickens in the town of Barneveld. Some of the known breeds used to create the Barnevelder 200 years ago were Brahma, Cochin, Croad Langshan and possibly Wyandotte and Buff Orpington. The Barnevelder chicken was created for hardiness, good egg production of brown eggs, as well as Winter egg production. More than a dozen Barnevelder varieties were created and recognized but the Silver Double Laced Barnevelder is known to be the rarest color. Also known as "Barnies", they are a calm and docile breed. The hens are excellent year round layers of up to 200 eggs a year.

The most unique feature of this chicken breed is their double laced feather pattern which appeared in Europe in the 1920's and only the hens express this double lacing. Feather Lover Farms has been working to breed only the finest quality of crisp and precise Double Lacing in hopes to consistently produce high-quality Double Laced chicks from every hatch. This striking breed is a fantastic choice whether you have the capability of a large or small flock. The Silver Double Laced Barnevelder rare color and feather pattern is simply breathtaking.
