Description:Started pullets are for people who
don't have the time, equipment or ability to care for chicks, or who are
just too anxious for some fresh backyard eggs to start with chicks.
The Barnevelder hails from the Barneveld region of Holland where it is so well-known that, according to the Barnevelder Club of North America, the Barnevelder name is synonymous with the word chicken. It is sought after there for its dark "chocolate" brown eggs, and while Barnevelder eggs in this country have lost some of that dark pigment, breeders here are working hard to change that. This beautiful bird with the in-demand, beautiful "double laced" feathers is hardy and quiet and doesn't mind being confined. In short, it makes a wonderful pet.
All 6-week-old chickens are shipped USPS Express Mail, and are
vaccinated for Marek's and MG (killed). Please keep your 6-week-olds quarantined from your existing flock for four or more weeks, and take care when introducing them.
