Tips from Our Junior Blogger: Plymouth Barred Rock Chicken

Tip From Our Junior Blogger
Chicken tending tips straight from the mouth of a Kindergartener!

Plymouth Barred Rock Chicken

She is a black and white chicken that lays brown eggs.  She has a big comb, big wattles and big ears. Her legs are yellowish/brownish.  She likes to "bawk" a lot when we go outside. She is loud before and after she lays an egg. When one of the other chickens are in a nesting box she "bawks" loud at them because she wants to lay her egg in that box. She lays lots of eggs.

We had to get rid of Agnes awhile ago because she was getting too noisy and we didn't want our neighbors to get mad about our chickens.  I miss her a lot but am happy because we will be getting more chicks!

Thanks for reading!  Stay tuned next week to learn from our Junior Blogger about another chicken breed.


  1. Thank you for the very good information about Barred Rocks. I have 4 of them along with 4 Rhode Island Reds and 6 Buff Orpingtons. Luckily we live out in the country so we don't have to worry about any chicken noises bothering our neighbors. I'm sorry you could not keep Agnes but I'm sure you will have fun with some new chicks. Great picture too:) Keep up the good work!

  2. Lovely information for Kindergarten kids, they must do noisy otherwise how it will give answer her friends after she make egg :) I like chickens but I can see them in my country in Hong Kong. Be happy
