The Barred Plymouth Rock chicken is one of the most popular breeds for small farms and free-range flocks. With a calm temperament and a docile personality, Barred Rocks make great pet chickens as well as dual-purpose meat chickens and egg-layers. Laying about 280 large, brown eggs annually, it is one of the top egg-layers. The Barred Rock is great with children and will quickly become an affectionate member of the family that will greet you at the door. With thick, striped black and white feathers and a neat red comb, the Barred Rock will endure cold weather conditions and can also be confined without problems.
