Yes, of course.  Some sell nothing, ever, to anyone.  They breed purely as their own artform/hobby.  Some sell only adults as they do not wish to have anything "out there" attached to their name, that they didn't pick as survivors of the culling process.  Some sell excess juveniles, fewer sell chicks and even fewer, it seems, sell eggs as the PO is brutally hard them in far too many cases.  

 

When working with a breeder, take the time to ask questions and then listen to what is being said.  Many breeders I know have short patience with folks who do not understand or appreciate the fancy from the point of view of that particular breeder.  Many, many breeders never advertise, most never, ever participate on forums such as this, many do not do social media at all and some don't even operate a computer.

 

It takes all kind of people to make the world go 'round.  Some folks in this fancy are VERY sensitive, so it's often best to see if a basic talking relationship can be established first.  

 Hi Fred,

 This is really true, I agree. When it became obvious I couldn't breed my Light Sussex here with the new bitter winters we are having ( single comb issue), I rehomed them with a local farmer. He has the room and farm to breed and the facilities to keep them comfortable during the winters.  This veteran poultry man doesn't have a computer either. Just a room full of trophies he won over many years with his Pencilled Rocks.

' nough, said, ;)

Walt Boese strain and Tewart flock of Pure English  Light Sussex

My flock now resides with Farmer Karl in PA.   

  I know he will do well by them. Karl is a knowing poultry man.

RIP Hellbender, my friend. Good friend, good heart, gone too soon.
