    They both look like girls to me, as I can't really see any pointy saddle or hackle feathers. Very pretty!

    My neighbor, Erhard breeds bantam and large Barnevelders. I have one that is 14 wks old. She is the large breed and very beautiful. Erhard ships hatching eggs, not pullets or adult chickens. He owns Kummer Poultry Farm here in Auburn, WA. His number is (360) 886-2359

    I bought a dozen fertilised eggs mixed lge breeds from a breeder of heritage chooks, and placed them under my broody hen. Eight hatched and we ended up with 2 barnevelder hens and 2 rhode island red hens the other four were roo's.
