These hens will be 3+ months old and will lay in the next few weeks if they aren't already laying.
Barred Plymouth Rocks or "Barred Rocks," as they're called, are one of the most popular dual-purpose chickens on small farms today. Their heritage is unclear with reports of different crosses, but what is clear is that they're very friendly, great layers of large brown eggs and able to withstand cold weather quite nicely. These are also widely used as one of the foundation breeds in some Sexlink varieties.
Barred Rocks mature moderately quickly at about 24 weeks and will lay 275 - 300 eggs per year.
This breed has less interest than some of the other breeds we carry so we typically don't have these birds on hand. We feel they are a solid variety and are happy to order them if you would like to add them to your flock. Please contact us if you would like to order this breed so we can ensure availability.
Laying/Almost Laying age birds typically need to be grown out or have a wait list so they may take several months before they are ready.
