Long ago we kept Barnevelders, when we were first starting out with chickens. We had hatchery barnevelders and although they were beautiful, they weren't really what they should be. As we moved our focus to well bred heritage breeds, we lost track of them over the years.
Recently we have had the opportunity to acquire a small flock of direct US imported Silver Barnevelders via Bambina's Poultry. This flock lives on our Mill Bay farm. We have purchased additional Silver Laced Barnevelders from WestCoast Farms as well as an Alberta breeder who imports from the UK as our small flock at our Sherwood Park, AB farm and are pleased to see this breed making it's way into Canada. They are a hardy, productive breed that is second to none for beauty.
Please note: our flocks in BC and Alberta are of 2 different lineages, and would be compatible crosses to work with!
