    I'm just getting going with poultry. I'm hoping to breed rare heritage breeds. I'm a High School science teacher (BS Biology Chemistry minor) and a dairy farmer. I raise registered Brown Swiss. I'm also an avid Hosta hybridizer. Location: Rowley, Iowa

    I have been around Poultry most of my life, but chickens were not allowed in my hometown. When I graduated college and bought a house, one of the first things I did was buy chickens. I have mostly had mutts, but am hoping to breed here starting this Fall or winter.

    I like rare and unusual poultry. Crested, naked neck, giants, ...I really want to focus on the rare as well as put my Biology background to the test and start a project or two.

    Currently I have: a pair of Pearl Guineas (and eggs in the bator), a fawn crested duck, her hybrid mate, and their two sons (not crested), a Royal Palm Tom, a Narragansetthen, 5 growing African Goslings, 3 Embden Goslings, a mutt rooster (looks like a bantam x standard), 4 mutt hens, 1 red EE (looks like a production red), and chicks (BBS Cochin, SQ BBS Ameraucana, Welsummer, FBC Maran, Buckeye, and Gold Laced Polish.)

    Looking for: All SQ Jersey Giants, Langshan, Silver Wyandotte, Various Polish, Speckled Sussex, Golden Lakenvelder (secret reasons), and Orpingtons.

    My Gold Laced Polish just started laying on 20 November 2011. When fertility is confirmed, eggs will be $2.00 per egg plus shipping. I only have a pair at this point. Pictures to follow.
