    Does anyone know where I could find show quality Barred hollands? Thank you. I'm located in Northwest Iowa but travel quite a bit.

    Where are you located? For show quality birds you are going to want to source your stock from a private breeder's flock that has birds with the look you are seeking. Knowing your location will better help us to recommend breeders that might be easiest for you to work with. As Barred Hollands are a less common breed you are going to be a little harder pressed to find the stock you seek. Attending poultry shows in your area can be a good way to start finding breeders with birds like you want.

    Ideal hatchery has barred Hollands, but they're not show quality. They make fine backyard birds though.

    I ordered hatching eggs from breeder in Ohio on ALBC and had great success- 6 of 8 hatched. Birds are exactly to standard and eggs are white!
