Want Some Fantastic Colour In Your Coop? The Barter Brown Meets The Bill!
The Barter Brown is one of our signature breeds that originates from a Rhode Island Red and White Leghorn cross that is now bred true. This breed is not as large as the pure breds. They have fantastic colouring and show a definite brown and white fleck in their feathers. Every hen has different markings, so you will always know who is who!
The Barter Brown hen is lighter in body weight and will eat less, making her efficient and economical in egg production. The Barter Brown is the quietest breed we have.
