    Would like to purchase fertile barred rock eggs. I would like to find someone located in Ohio so that I could pick up the eggs. I live near Urbana, Ohio. Thanks. Dave

    We have a mixed coop of Barred Rocks & Orpingtons. Just hatchery strain, nothing fancy. We can't tell the eggs apart, so you'd end up with 2/3 pure BR and 1/3 BR&Orp mix. The rooster is a Barred Rock, and I've found fertility 'bullseye' in all the eggs I've checked.

    BRs, last fall, before they started laying:

    We're a ways away from you, though.... Sunbury, OH

    Quote:[​IMG] howdy neighbor! we're in cable. i have some barred rocks but my roo is NH red. so i am of no help but thought it was funny there was someone else from our area. where are you located?

    i bought my BRs up at Meyer, it was about an hour and a half.

    i'd be willing to sell some eggs, but i don't know who's come from who, nor how to tell if they're fertile but since i have a roo and 26 hens, i assume they're most all bred.

    Thanks for the posts!

    We are actually outside Mechanicsburg on 161. To my Cable friend, you probably know the Wrights over there. The Rock/Hampshire mix is a little off what we are looking for, although I'm not an expert. Thanks though.

    The Sunbury chickens with the pure BR with a few Orph/BR eggs mixed in would be OK.

    Thanks,

    Dave
