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. Cackle Hatchery®’s Barnevelder breeding stock will produce mostly a double laced partridge feather pattern. The Barnevelder chicken is rare to find in the USA but becoming more popular each year. For 2017 there is a 49 maximum limit per order due to our small flocks.
I just wanted to send you some feedback on an order you sent me. They arrived all healthy and are doing great!!! My wife and I wanted to thank you for the way you handled the order and the quality of the chicks you sent us. (Posted on 12/2/2015)
Thank You Review by Bill, Missouri February 2013
I'm just wanting to express my thanks to you for the five different breeds of chicks that I got from your hatchery Feb 12th. They are doing quite well, one or two of the chicks has a soft poop but still seem to be full of energy. Being I never experienced chicks before, I was really surprised at how fast they grow. On the fifth day I had to extend my wall of the brooding area because they would jump and or fly over my twelve inch high pen. I did lose one of the barred rocks around the third or fourth day. I actually expected to lose two or three but I am blessed to have lost only one. Thanks for good service, information and kindly taking the time to answer my many questions. (Posted on 11/30/2015)
