    I had never heard of Barnevelders until about a year ago. I got hatching eggs this summer from Fossil Rock Farm. I had 7 eggs, 5 hatched. Ended up with 3 Roos and two hens. We rehomed two of the roosters.
    They are the most beautiful birds! The iridescence in their feathers is unbelievable. I got a few good pictures today. Pictures seem to come out better on overcast days for some reason. Hope you enjoy looking!

    They're going on 8 months. I'm not even sure the pulles have started laying.
    They really are spectacular in person when the sun is shining on them.
