Identifying your Barnevelder

So how do you know if you have a real barnevelder ?

There are a few types of chickens and even some hybrids that look a bit or quite a lot like Barnevelders. We recently had someone come to us who bought some eggs that were sold to them as Barnevelders and they turned out like the hen you see in the picture, with rose combs and incomplete lacing. The first clue should have been the cream coloured eggs.

The breed standard for the barnevelder was first written in 1921 and has changed a little since. The first barnevelder to be standardized and the most common is the double laced barnevelder. There are now six colours of barnevelder, White, brown and black as well as blue double laced and silver in both bantam and full size. The breed standard varies depending on where you are in the world. For an overview of the barnevelder breed click here.
