I started raising Barnevelders in 2009 and I have not mixed in any other breed into the double laced black variety.Rachel dont get your comment???? I am showing my fossil rock Barnevelders
I have tried to get others interested in them
I talk to people at show interested in them
Are you showing??? Most of the enthusiasts left this thread thinking it was dominated by west coast people who arent interested in showing!!! As far as i can determine my stock is 100percent Barnevelder no mixing for size etc. i am interested in participating to improve the breed! Not for ribbons prizes!!! Rare beautiful kind Dutch chickens
Farmer Johan used to tell me, " When something is perfect, you should not change it." He imported his Barnevelders from the Netherlands in the 1970s and kept a closed flock.
