    My name is Nate and I have 8 different breeds of chickens currently and I am wanting to expand! I own and operate a Lawn and Landscaping Service and I raise Poultry and now 2 feeder pigs as a hobby. I am starting to breed a few Imported Breeds as well. I am just getting into Breeding Oriental Chickens like O Shamo. I am married to the most wonderful woman and we have a little boy. She wasn't to fond of farming before she met me but now she likes it just as much or more than I do! We do sell chicks, started birds, POL Pullets, Roosters, and a few hatching eggs now and then. Look fir our Auctions on BYC!

    My current Breeds are


    Imported English Chocolate Opington
    Imported English Double Barred Lemon Cuckoo Orpington
    Lavender Orpington
    B/B/S Orpington
    Buff Orpington
    O Shamo

    Easter Eggers/Olive
    Red Sex Links

    This is my Incubator (Right) and Hatcher (Left). The Incubator holds around 22 dozen eggs and stays pretty much packed full!

    Brooders
    I searched and searched for a good brooder design that has 4 main things.

    1. Easy to use.
    2. Low Maintenance
    3. Easy to clean
    4. Cost Efficient


    Here is our Reused Double Decker Cabinet Brooders. I was cleaning out my Father In Law's Shop and I asked if I could have them. He said sure. I told him that I will make brooders out of them and he liked that I was reusing materials!
