The Barnevelder is a rare breed. Originating from the district of Barneveld, Holland between c. 1850 and 1875.
The Barnevelder is easy to care for and excellent layers (up to 150 eggs per year) of dark brown eggs.
They are Docile and tame yet active and easy to contain. If keeping with other breeds, you will need to be sure they are getting enough to eat as they can be easily picked on as they are so placid.

Chickens absolutely LOVE Styrofoam they play for hours, and the best bit is it passes right through them!
