Barred Plymouth Rock Chickens

The Plymouth Rock Chicken is one of the older and most popular layers of brown eggs in the United States. The Barred Plymouth Rock, also known as the Barred Rock, is the most popular variety of the Plymouth Rock breed, and it is also one of the most popular brown egg layers for small farm and back yard chicken farming in the United States. The Barred Plymouth Rock was first shown in 1869, and it was one of the first breeds to be admitted to the American Standard of Excellence in 1874. Barred Rock Chickens were created by crossing a male Dominique with a female Black Cochin or Black Java to produce a heavy breed of chicken with the plumage pattern and egg laying capabilities of the Dominique and the broodiness and docile temperament of the Black Cochin.

Barred Plymouth Rock Chickens are an excellent dual purpose chicken breed and they will lay an exceptional number of large brown eggs over their lifetime. They will lay between 200-300 eggs in a year, and when they no longer have any laying utility they are large enough to produce a good amount of chicken meat. The Barred Plymouth Rock is often confused with the Dominique Chickens, but they Dominique will have a rose comb while the Barred Rock has the more recognizable single comb. They are great backyard birds and usually have fairly calm temperaments when interacted with from a young age. Another great quality of the Barred Rock is that their "barring" plumage pattern is a sex-link characteristic, meaning that the males and females can be differentiated from birth simply by color. The females will be much darker and have much more black than the males.

The Barred Plymouth Rock Chicken is an extremely hardy and heavy breed that will thrive in almost all conditions and climates in the United States. Under the right conditions they will continue to lay well throughout the winter. This bird is highly recommended for families and backyard farmers who wish to raise birds for egg purposes, but may also want to harvest the meat as well. They can be tamed easily and are great for children wishing to handle the birds.

Great Customer Service October 16, 2015
Reviewer: David Westhead from Orangeburg, SC United States  
As a first time chicks-by-mail person, I was in a state of panic when I got my shipping notification.  I was "Oh no they'll  get here on Saturday!  What do I do? "  Then, "I can't find my chicks(Post Office hadn't up dated)"  Every person I spoke to at Efowl was so nice, helpful and patient with me.  You can bet that I will be a repeat customer.  ps: Mother (me) and chicks are doing great!

Chicks from eFowl and Shipping Tip October 7, 2015
Reviewer: Sharlene Beals from La Pine, OR United States  
My chicks arrived safe and sound, thank you.  One was suffering a bit, but I pulled her from the group and kept her a bit warmer since she seemed cold and weak.  Also, I used the sugar water trick and every few minutes dipped her beak in to get her to drink.  Within the day, she was revived and back with the rest of the flock.  I'd like to remind everyone that just because you don't see much in the tracking of your package doesn't mean there is a problem.  I was worried due to lack of scans by the post office, but my chicks arrived on the specified date and my post office called me at 5:30am to let me know they were here and could be picked up.  Now I know I don't have to worry during the shipping process!Overall, I would say that eFowl is a great place to purchase from and I will definitely be ordering again in the future.
