Plymouth Barrred Rock Started Pullets

 

If you asked most folks what a Plymouth Rock hen’s plumage looked like, they would say “black and white bars."  Kids prefer to call them the "zebra striped chickens."

 

The Barred Plymouth Rock is the oldest and best known of the all chicken breeds.  It is definitley one of the breeds that your grandpa had in his flock.

 

Plymouth Rocks are very respectable layers of large brown eggs. They average around 200 eggs per year which equates to roughly 4 eggs per week.

 

They lay well for the first couple of years but around year 3, a slow decline in productivity starts. However, hens have been known to lay into their 10th year!

 

In terms of their temperament, Barred Rocks are mellow birds. They are not known for bad attitudes or picking at flock mates, and they seem to get along with everyone.

 

They are described by their owners as sweet, calm, and docile – even the roosters!

 

Plymouth Rocks are always curious, and they love to check out their environment and follow you around to see what you are up to or any treats to be had.

 

Rocks much prefer to free-range and find tasty morsels in the yard, but they tolerate confinement well if given enough space.

 

Once you have established your relationship, this is a very trusting hen and is great with the family and children.
