    Awesome. If you’re ever headed this way just let me know. Is she friendly?

    She isn’t to bad but when you reach out to pet her she moves away. I haven’t ever tried to tame her so I’m sure it wouldn’t take to long. She is in with a Swedish flower hen and 6 blue icebar hens and a icebar Roo. They all get along well.

    I love all my babies to be cuddly, so I’d have to work on her. ;)

    I know my Barnevelders were not very productive. Gorgeous, but a good day was finding three or four eggs in the nest boxes out of 30 hens? And that was in the few months out of the year they deigned to lay. Most of the time they were a waste of feed but easy on the eyes.
