Blue Double Laced Barnevelder (Large Fowl) Breed Information

Bred direct from a top breeder in Holland, I bought these birds at a top show in Europe after watching them score an impressive score of 95 out of 98 . The markings and lacing is fantastic and the type is perfect for the standard. There will be very few of these birds in the country, so this is a rare chance to purchase some. The birds lay brown eggs. The offspring will be 50% Blue, 25% Black and 25% Splash.
