    This is my first attempt to upload a picture to the BYC. This is one of my Barnies. I hope to sell some hatching eggs in the next few weeks.

    She's very pretty, Do you have a roo or cockerel you need to get rid of? I need to get a barnie roo or cockerel to go with my flock.

    Do you know how far it is from Florence, Al to Paris, Tn? I'm thinking about 150 miles, do you know if that sounds right?

    Well anyhow let me know if you have any to get rid of and how much you want for 1 or 2. Maybe I could drive up there sometime.

    How dark are your eggs? I am very interested in this breed.

    I love the greenish lacing on their feathers. I have heard that Barnevelders do exceptionally well in cold climates. What do you think, based on experience?

    My Barnie eggs are not as dark as I expected but my girls came from Ideal, not a breeder. They're darker than any of my other girls' eggs. I love them just the same.

    Where did you get your barnies? Breeder or hatchery? I may be interested in some eggs. Thanks

    These originally came from Ideal, but I am working on improving the stock. Their egg laying ability is not very good, and they are not very hardy either.
