The double-laced partridge pattern of the rare breed Barnevelder is truly a sight to behold. This showy bird is a beautiful bronze on iridescent greenish-black lacing on reddish-brown colored feathers. 

The Barnevelder is a dutch breed, developed around 200 years ago in the town of Barneveld, Holland. They are known for their hardiness and for being good layers of dark brown eggs. They were bred to lay well, even in the long damp Northern European winters. Barnevelders are very rare in the United States which makes them quite desirable and highly sought after. They are slow to mature but make a good dual purpose breed.
