Buff Barred Rocks can be raised anywhere. Since they are cold-hardy birds, 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.
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.
