These Barred Plymouth Rock Exhibition Type standard size chickens closely conform to their breed description in the American Poultry Association Standard of Perfection. This breed has been standardized since 1874. The Standard describes them as being an active and useful dual-purpose breed.
As called for in the Standard, these Barred Plymouth Rock chickens have a long, broad back and broad, well-rounded breast. The rooster’s tail angles 30 degrees from the back. The hen’s tail angles at 20 degrees. Both the rooster and hen have black-and-white barred feathers, with the rooster’s plumage slightly paler than the hen’s.
Barred Plymouth Rock Exhibition Type chickens feather early, giving you an advantage for early season poultry shows. They are among the top most popular breeds for exhibition.
