    I love the silver laced barnevelders, and would like to add them to my flock. Does someone know of anyone with eggs and/or chicks for sale?

    Silver Barnevelders don't exist inside the US, and even outside are VERY rare.

    Beautiful bird - the place I got my hatching eggs from this time breed them, but this is in UK - sorry! This time I got a random selection of 12 eggs as I wanted a good variety - but next time I will be more selective. I would like one of these Silver Laced ones - I did get two normal Barnevelder and one blue laced one in my selection, so hoping at least one of them turns out to be a hen!!

    Someone awhile back was saying that they could be created here in the U.S. with some work. I can't find it at theis moment.

    Could you use a silver laced Wyandotte? I know people are using the blue laced Wyandottes to make the blue laced Barnevelder.
