Barred Rock Chicken is recognized by the American Standard of Perfection as a distinct pure chicken breed in 1874 and known as the kind of chickens that "Grandma" use to raise. This is one of the color varieties of the Plymouth Rock chicken family and an excellent winter/summer brown egg layer. The Barred Standard Plymouth Rock Chicken is a great back yard poultry for production and very kid friendly chicken. Most people call these "Barred Rocks” which is a short name for the Barred Plymouth Rock chicken. Some people confuse the Barred Rock chicken with the Dominique chicken breed. The Barred Rock has a single comb (straight comb) and has more of a straight pattern in the barred feathers. The Dominique chicken has a rose comb and a slight v pattern in the barring of the feathers. Both make for good chickens in the winter and good pet chickens.

It is recommended that you contact your local store directly if you are interested in purchasing standard breeds such as Rhode Island Red, Barred Rock, Buff Orpington, Golden Comet, or Black Laced Silver Wyandottes because they may have them on hand in store immediately. For all other special orders of poultry, the minimum order is 6 birds PER BREED-after 6, any number can be ordered. CountryMax is unable to order in quantities less than 10, and we cannot split orders. Orders will be shipped from the hatchery as available, so CountryMax does not make any promise or imply delivery dates whatsoever. Please note in the comment box your desired ship date and we will make every effort to accommodate but we are at the mercy of hatching dates from the hatchery.
Payment is due with order. No refunds will be given once orders have been placed with the hatchery. Customer must pick up chicks within 2 days following notification of chick delivery or order will be added to store stock and sold. CountryMax does not assume liability for chicks after they leave the premises. CountryMax will do everything we can to correctly identify chick breeds upon pickup, but customer is responsible for making sure correct breed is taken at pickup. The hatchery guarantees a 90% accurate sexing rate- if mis-sexed birds total 10% or more of your order, they must be reported to CountryMax within 16 weeks of pickup.
