Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. I've never purchased any birds from Holderead Farms, but am interested in seeing any responses from members who have. You might want to post on our Chicken Breeders and Hatcheries section in Chicken Breeds under the Forum at the top of the page as well. You will likely get more responses regarding Holderead Farms there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Happy New Year.

:welcome

 

You might also consider posting in the duck forum as Holderread Farms specializes in waterfowl:

I think this farm is Dave Holderread's, the author of "Storey's Guide to Raising Ducks". That's an excellent book in case you haven't seen it yet.

This is a new members introduction thread,  so I doubt you would get many folks acquainted with that farm. As suggested  try posting on the  ducks thread.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

They are referring to Holderread Waterfowl Farm in Corvallis, Oregon.  Yes, David Holderread runs the preservation with his family, he also authored Storey's guide to raising ducks and The book of geese.

 

They are amazing, people, won't find better quality, anywhere.

Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-
