Striped black and white feathers give the Barred Plymouth Rock its name, but this chicken is best known for its easy-going temperament and affectionate personality. The Barred Rock is intelligent, friendly, easy to handle and easy to manage. It is also an active forager that will quickly take care of worms, ants, lizards, ticks and other pests other chickens shy from. Producing about 280 large, brown eggs a year and weighing between six and seven pounds, the Barred Rock is a great dual-purpose breed.
