    I'm thinking on getting a Barnevelder as a companion bird for my pigeon. But I want free eggs too. Dose anyone have a good word about Barnevelders?

    Mine aren't laying yet, but they are very calm, friendly birds. (not to mention beautiful) They do tend to go broody - so you'll have to consider whether that's something you want to deal with.
