Our Barter Black Hens are 17-18 weeks old
The barter black chicken is one of Barter and Sons signature breeds that orginates from an Australorp and Rhode Island Red cross that is now bred true.
They are usually black with a lot of red fleck in their feathers around the neck and the body. For some of them, the red shines like copper in the sunshine and is really a magnificent sight!
The Barter Black hen is lighter in body weight and will eat less, making her efficient and economical in egg production.
The Barter Black is the quietest breed we have.
