Medium / Large Pure Chicken Breeds

Barnevelder Chicken

Barnevelder Chicken are a well known breed that lays a large brown egg, which can be speckled. For this reason they are popular with those wanting attractive brown eggs. They are double laced gold, so have lacing like a Wyandotte, although not as prominent, but are a better layer and less likely to go clucky. They are a Dutch breed, so are bred for colder weather. For this reason they are one of the first pure breeds to start laying each season and are popular in Tasmania.

  • Colours: Double laced gold
  • Broody: Sometimes
  • Eggs per week: 5
  • Sexed at: 8 weeks old

Wyandotte Chicken

Wyandotte Chicken (pronounced wine-dot) are one of the breeds we are asked for most often – due to their appearance and high profile online. They are a poorer layer than most of the breeds we keep and very likely to go broody. However, they have a longer life and longer laying life as they don’t lay as much each year. The gold laced and silver laced Wyandottes are very popular due to their striking appearance. These are often sold as fertilised eggs, day old chicks, or at 8 weeks, when are old enough to go outside, meaning we rarely have supply of these at an age when they are old enough to join an established flock. We plan to increase numbers for future seasons. We occasionally are able to source older birds and list on the website under ‘Chickens available’ when we have them. White Wyandottes and silver pencilled Wyandottes are less popular than the gold laced and silver laced Wyandottes, as they are not well known and the white Wyandottes are less striking as they are all white.

There are other Wyandotte colours we do not keep, such as red laced and blue laced, because they are not recognised breeds and not true to type.

  • Colours: Gold laced, Silver laced, Silver Pencilled, White
  • Broody: Often
  • Eggs per week: 5
  • Sexed at: 8 weeks old
