Bielefelder chickens have all the characteristics that you will want for your backyard coop. I'd think it was the way I raised them, except it was the same way I've raised my other cockerels who have made excellent table fare. You want to keep the environment as free of germs as possible. They are the friendliest, most curious birds I have ever had. He had several pens in a field and moved them daily, stimulating their appetites, more bugs to eat, fertilizing the field, never stripping an area.

Culled for hardiness and ability to feed themselves. The first few times I shrugged it off and figured it was just a weak bird that died however over the months and years I kept randomly happening. If you want to get more information about raising chickens, you can read our post: Summary If you want to get started raising chickens or you even already have a lot of experience raising them, the Bielefelder offers you a choice that was bred to eliminate some of the undesirable traits in many of the other chicken breeds to create the perfect chicken.

One of the top sellers with quality birds. We free range our birds and they make a very good free range breed. They are not fliers and can be kept in fencing similar to orpingtons. It is a good low impact way of prepping a garden area. There are so many other breeds out there that look great, perhaps lay even better, or have other better qualities, but it was not practical for us to keep buying different chicken breeds, but to focus on one that provides all what we need for homesteading.

The bowls stay where they are put, we no longer have to go to the back of the coop to get them. For those of you who do not want baby chicks already hatched and wanting to experience yourself the thrill of watching life form and baby chicks hatching out of an egg, then this is for you. I am very interested in your chicken tractor. Publius, one of my two boys, was an absolute lap dog. In 2013, and again in 2017, we imported unrelated bloodlines of Bielefelders.

I think they would make a good free range bird as they are more aware and much harder to catch than most domestic breeds. That is a pretty good return on your investment if you ask me. I can't recommend these guys more highly for a beginner flock. The complex color pattern in the adults is known as Kennfarbig and in English would be called cuckoo red partridge. After all, this breed loves being in the open air.

From day one you will know what sex your chicks are. I did like the shape of the hens, they were very round and chunky looking. They have a very docile disposition and easy to tame and kid-friendly. The holes on the frame are straight up. I butchered a cockerel at 6 mths, which is my normal time for a heritage breed, and found him to have so little meat for his weight that I waited another couple months for the other cockerels. Generally speaking, they dont roost well and will either sleep in nesting boxes or on the floor of the coop. If you cover the scorched area with some mulch you have a good start to a garden without even turning the ground.

They have very soft colors reminiscent of water colors. We will be incubating some of their eggs in the spring so we can have some more of these gals. Also is there a reason you decided to cover all four sides of the coop. He is easy to catch and will let you hold him without much fuss. I live in Northern Ireland by the way.
