The basics:
The Barnebar was the first breed created by Reginald Punnet and his team. Their goal was to create auto-sexing breeds, in which male and female chickens would hatch different colors. To do this, they crossed together Barred Plymouth Rocks and Barnevelders. The Barnebar was popular during World War I, as people enjoyed not having to feed male chicks. Today, the Barnebar is considered rare.
