Our laced Barnevelders seem to be particularly productive. The blue laced pullet in the photo on the left started laying at about 22 weeks in October and has laid well all winter without any additional lighting.
I kept back some blue, brown and a splash pullets for breeding in 2018. I also have a splash cockerel to breed with some unrelated standard laced hens, and all offspring from that pen will be blue laced, my preferred colour. I also will be hatching from some unrelated blue laced hens that are being served by one of our blue laced cockerels from 2017. I have a spare standard laced cockerel for sale for £12, but no pullets are available at this time.
