    Did you know? Barred Rock bantams are gaining in popularity, so much so that there's usually lots of competition in shows?

    Well, this thread is old but no breeders have been responding. I don't have any available, my flock has been struggling. You can ask around, I'm sorry I couldn't help you much.

    I've had trouble raising my Barred Rock Bantam chicks also. I water them with an I dropper with sugar water and electrolytes for a few days. Now that they are grown they are doing well. I have about a dozen or more hens and lots of roosters. But My wife and I love our Barred Bantams. [​IMG]

    You have beautiful chickens! Sorry I took so long getting back to you. It's been a busy week.

    I recently lost two good roosters of this breed. Honestly, I only have like 7 birds of this breed. But I show them and started this thread for anyone who had barred rock bantams. Pro's and newbies can join this thread.



    Thanks for posting, by the way! Nice chickens!

    I have a young cockerel, only about 8 weeks old. I'm wondering at what age he might be sexually mature. I have a hen I'd like to breed him with. [​IMG]

    I have bred a 5 month old Barred Rock cockerel with a hen. Also, I have read that they can mate successfully at 5 to 6 months of age. Good luck with him!

    Thank you! I can't keep him long because Roos aren't aloud in my area. I'm hoping to get some hatching eggs before he has to go.

    Oh no! That stinks. Well, let's hope he's a non-crower!
