Barnevelder's have to be one of the most popular, distinctive and attractive types of backyard chickens in Australia.
This is why-
1. Beautiful Chocolate Brown Coloured Eggs
Barnevelders arguably lay some of the most beautifully coloured eggs in the world. Now, there is no evidence to suggest that any variety of chicken breed lays tastier eggs than another, however, barnevelders do lay particularly gorgeous eggs, made recognisable by their chocolatey brown shells. Your mouth will start to water when you see these tanned, terracotta coloured eggs resting in your nesting boxes each and every morning. The only downside is when the time comes to crack these glorious eggs open you might struggle to destroy something so beautiful! The good news is barnevelders lay around 200 eggs per year, so if you have plenty of these cute and quirky birds in your coop you should have a fairly constant supply of these eggstraordinary eggs all year round!
2. Extremely Laid-Back Personality, Making Them Perfect for Suburban Backyards
Barnevelders are definitely not the most active and energetic chicken breed out there. In fact, these cute little birds are sort of lazy. But like any loveable lazy character, like Homer Simpson or Garfield, you’ll soon find yourself appreciating their laid-back personalities. In time your flock of barnevelders teach you a thing or two about living the good life and you’ll have no worries about kicking back, relaxing and putting your troubles on hold. This being said, barnevelder chickens can sometimes pack on the pounds, especially if you’re feeding them the wrong kind of treats, like bread or pasta. Don’t overfeed these beautiful chilled ladies because you can rest assured that they won’t be waking up at sunrise to do aerobics, yoga or pilates classes inside their coop.
3. Sassy Little Birds Bursting with Personality
Barnevelders are absolutely stunning but are actually fairly low maintenance. Just like other chickens, beautiful barnevelders will take care of their personal hygiene by regularly giving themselves dust baths, as well as preening themselves. So, you won’t need to worry about giving your flappy friends bath, barnevelders will be able to take care of their looks almost all year round.
