Plymouth Barred Rocks are dual-purpose chickens. They are meant for a small farm that has a backyard coop. These birds lay eggs year-round. Not only that, but their plumpness is great for a roasted chicken. Barred Plymouth Rocks have a single comb and are heat and cold hardy. 

Barred Rocks can be raised anywhere. Since they are a cold-hardy bird, they will continue to lay eggs in the winter months. This breed is adaptable to confinement and free range. Even though they handle confinement well, they prefer to roam free in the yard.

Due to their adaptability, these smart and friendly chickens would be a wonderful addition to anyone’s backyard poultry flock. 

Production: They are excellent at laying large eggs. They lay 200-280 brown eggs per year. Their egg production is steady, even during the cold winter months. Barred Rocks have a yellow skin color. Sometimes the hens become broody, but they are good mothers.

Temperament: Baby Barred Plymouth Rock Chickens have a docile personality, which makes them nice birds to have around the backyard. The hen and rooster get along with others because they have a gentle disposition. They even get along with other pets. This breed has a good ability to forage. 

History: This all-American breed got its start in Worcester, Massachusetts. They were created in the 1860s by D.A. Upham. He developed the breed by crossing Black Java pullets with a single-comb barred rooster. Shortly after, Plymouth Rocks became one of the most common birds in America. Their popularity quickly spread throughout the United States. The birds even replaced the Dominique as the most common backyard chicken.

APA Class: American 

Color Description: All of the baby chicks range in color from dark gray to black. They have cream patches on their body and head. As for the adults, they have black and white barred feathers. The males are lighter than the females, but they still display the same patterns. Each chicken has yellow legs, beaks and toes. Their earlobes, comb, wattles and faces are red, which helps the black and white bars stand out.
