These are some of the sweetest birds that one can ever own. The Barred Rock is definitely a favorite among chicken owners past and present. There is a special sparkle in their eyes that really pulls you in. Black and white feathers cover their body forming little stripes or “bars”, which is where the breeds name originates. Brightly colored shiny combs proudly stand atop their heads as a bold indicator of good health and hardiness.
