    I am now taking spring orders for my rhodebar eggs in sets of 8 for $24, plus $14 for shipping. Payment is thru paypal, and I double-box and double-wrap all orders. Rhodebars are great -- they're thrifty, excellent layers of large brown eggs, autosexing and pretty! They're a wonderful home flock bird and free-range well. All photos are of my birds -- chick photos are two different hatches from my breeders. PM me or reply below!

    Never heard of this breed. But they look suspiciously like what I got when my Barred rock rooster was in with my Rhode Island Red hens and I incubated the eggs.

    Enola, Rhodebars are an autosexing breed created from Rhode Islad reds and Brussbars, which are an English breed. Here's more about them: http://greenfirefarms.com/store/category/chickens/rhodebar/

    My breeders are GFF stock, and all brown egg layers (somehow a colored gene got into some lines that now lay green eggs -- they're not supposed to. Pure-bred rhodebars are brown-egg layers.)

    Thanks! [​IMG] Actually, they're even prettier now -- the pics are 2-3 months old or so and Sudeo (my roo) has filled out SO much -- I've really got to take some updated pics sometime. They're wonderful birds, and being able to sex them at hatch is a huge advantage for a small breeder like me. I've got two pens of 2nd gen adolescents growing out -- I'm going to keep the best of them for a second breeding flock next year and sell off the rest.

    Sounds like a Cream Legbar jumped the fence. [​IMG]

    Penny Hen, from the pictures I've seen of the "special green egg-laying" rhodebars here and there, that'd be my guess, too [​IMG]
