Welcome to my BYC Page!About me:
For Swaps, scroll down to find my Swap section.
I am an avid poultry enthusiast. I have been keeping poultry for over 30 years. In my teens I exhibited at the local level, and I often sell birds to local 4-Hrs and FFA. I pride myself in providing my birds with a comfortable and humane home. I allow my flock to free range (except when penned for breeding purposes or when a hawk is lurking.) in my 2 1/2 acre fully fenced yard. At night, all of my birds are snugly locked up at night as we have a lot of predators: Mountain Lions, Bobcat, Fox, Coyote, Raccoon, etc. I do not trap or hunt predators, I consider it my duty to provide my birds with secure pens.
I also raise Pedigreed rabbits:
Mini Rex in Tricolor, Lilac, blue, Blk/Blue Otter, Opal, some other colors (Some litters have surprises!) Lionheads -
Jersey Woolies: Tortoise, Blue (SQ, Champion stock)
Miniature Cheviot Sheep
I currently have a small flock or resitered Mini Cheviot sheep. This is a small and economical breed for the backyard flock. Fleece is of good quality, used to make clothing worn next to the skin.
Olive Eggers are Not Available Right Now, Sorry! Coming Soon! Spring 2017!!!! Here are some pictures of the typical colors they lay. My Olive Eggers are Barred and Black.

This dog carrier shoulder bag would have to be swapped for a pretty valuable item, such as SQ Black silkies, or something really rare and/or in large quantities. I bought this bag to carry my puppy in, and she outgrew it in no time. I paid well over $200 at a dog boutique and it is of uncommonly good construction and quality. The zippers are easy to work, heavy duty. It has a side compartments for wipes, etc. A double zippered flap top opening, a 3 way opening on the end that allows you to leave it open for your dog to stick its head out, or a mesh cover so it can see out, but not stick its head out, or a denim cover to disguise that you have a dog in your bag. The bottom has grommeted ventillation holes. This bag is good for dogs probably 11-12 lbs and under. Its on the large side for a shouldre bag carrier, in barely used shape.
Hatching Eggs (prefer 6 chicken eggs min. per swap) I will side-swap for:
