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 Barnevelders 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.
My 4 Barnevelders are 3 weeks old. They've arrived in 24 hours to Atlanta, in great health. They seem to grow by the second, but we've had no problems since their arrival. They are beutiful, full of personality, friendly and well behaved. Im very happy. Thank you. I will try to post a follow ip when they are older. (Posted on 5/5/2017)

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)
