    I was looking to buy some true barred rock fertile eggs to hatch out. I currently have 3 barred rock hens and a rooster, I have them separated from the rest of the flock in hopes to hatch pure barred rock chicks, but on separation from the rest of the flock I'm getting white eggs, as white as my white leghorns are laying. My barred rock came from tractor supply 2 years ago. My hopes was to have barred rock hens for next year to cross with my RIR roosters to have black star hybrids but I don't think my hens are true barred rock. Any hatcheries that are around central oklahoma, Shawnee area that have pure plymouth barred rock?

    I don't know about any hatcheries in your area that carry purebred Barred Rocks, but I wish you luck in finding some!

    I'm not sure where would be the best place to purchase some Barred Rock chicks. A friend of mine got a Barred Rock from Murray McMurray Hatchery, and that bird laid the correct color of egg. But, McMurray Hatchery is in Iowa, so you'd need to have birds shipped to you.

    I hope you will offer your insight.

    I am looking at purchasing a breeding pair of Barred Plymouth Rocks. This is will my first foray into a)having a Rooster b) having breeding chickens and c) this breed.

    I would very much like to start raising a heritage breed, and from my research, it sounds like this breed is very nice and easy to handle. Any insight would be very welcome!

    thank you!
