The Barred Rock is one of the all time traditional favorites among back yard farmers. Developed in New England in the early 1800's by crossing Dominiques and Black Javas, it has spread to every part of the U.S. and is an ideal American chicken. Prolific layers of brown eggs, the hens are not discouraged by cold weather. These chickens are often called Plymouth Rocks, but this title correctly belongs to the entire breed, not just the Barred variety. You can't beat them for steady, reliable chickens which are very active, inquisitive, and do well in any back yard flock. Their plumage is beautifully striped black and white. They are very eye catching!
