Because of space and financial reasons, we have had to cut back on the number of chickens we have from 60 to 40 or so. We have found some wonderful homes for many of our chickens but still have a few available.
This autumn my silkie hen hatched out two eggs, both of which are barred. There father was a pure Barred Rock an d there mother was an Easter Egger. While they were parent raised they have learned to come for food and to allow handling to some degree and love to follow around by your feet and take treats from you. Their names are Autumn (a male) and Breeze (appears to be a female but behaves like a male, so I am unsure). They still cheep but are independent from their mother. I have found this cross to be wonderful egg layers in the past, as I had a hen from these same parents who laid nearly ever day even after the Red Stars were tired out. They are hardy and good foragers.
The third barred chicken is a hen, around one and a half years of age, who has the same father but the mother is unknown (perhaps a Red Star). She has the appearance of a Barred Rock and loves to come for treats. Her name is Star and she is a good laying hen and is healthy. The chicks were raised around her, however, she will consider herself the boss over them.
We live near Marysville Ohio and are willing to drive about two hours, including if meeting half-way.
Thank you so much for considering!
Autumn is the larger, lighter colored one and Breeze is the darker, smaller one
Here are examples of an EE X Barred Rock mix rooster and hen (the hen is dust bathing)
This is Star. In the second picture, taken a few months ago, she was missing some feathers because of teenage roosters which we have sense gotten rid of and she has regrown her feathers.
