    Cool beans! [​IMG] Barnevelders, especially the ones bred to the Standard, are breathtaking.

    I was supposed to have one as well, but while she's stunning, she didn't feather out the way I anticipated. I suspect she's either a mistake coloration within their breeding stock or an accidental mix.

    I originally got a pair of 3 week old chicks from a lady who hatched out eggs she bought from Oklahoma. The pullet is mismarked as well so she will either be staying here but in an eating egg pen or placed. She is not breeding quality. her photo is on here as a thread I started called barnevelders (new here)

    I'll take a look! [​IMG] My girl is STUNNING, has the Barnevelder shape, but resembles a very high-quality Partridge Rock as far as color goes.
