Barnevelder

Please note - If you are collecting outside shop opening hours please add our purpose made transport boxes to your basket as hens will be boxed up and placed in the Click & Collect building (3 medium hens can be fitted in one box @ £2.95 each). 

 

Pure Breeds - We only tend to sell young pure breeds in pairs (or with other pure breeds of a similar age) unless there are exceptional circumstances as they are very prone to being bullied.  Pure breeds are slower growing and at this age wouldn't be suitable to mix with hybrids or older birds but would need to be kept separate and very slowly introduced when older.  They will require a grower feed until around 20/25+ weeks old.

 

The Barnevelder was developed by the Dutch in the town of Barneveld. The intention was to develop a hen that was both hardy and would produce eggs that were brown in colour.

 

They are usually lovely, docile hens and make good mothers.

 

They can be prone to laziness so if they are not free ranging be careful not to overfeed with treats!

  • I confirm by buying live chickens I will:

    • Provide a secure, fox proof house with good ventilation and perches for them to sleep on.  They will be locked in overnight if their run is not predator proof.
    • Provide at least 1 square metre of run space for bantams and 2 square metres for medium and large birds.
    • Provide a constant supply of clean water.
    • Provide a constant supply of layers mash or layers pellets.
    • Supply a constant supply of mixed grit & oyster shell.
    • Will put temporary bowls of food & water in different areas for the first few weeks whilst the pecking order is established.
    • I have purchased a minimum of 2 x birds.
