    Help Pick Our Homestead Logo - Finale!

    Thanks so much, everyone! After running polls on a few sites and then actually printing out all the logos on labels, we ended up going with 549 :) His was by FAR the most clear in tiny print!

    The Buckeye Thread

    I'm super interested in eggs, if you have a waitlist! We ordered a sampling of hatchery birds last year to try out, and our Buckeye and Australorp are by far our two favorites. Our Buckeye is the most outgoing, an expert killer of bugs, and is the only one who hasn't gotten any frostbite, even...

    ISO - Show Quality Autosexing Welsummer & Cream or Opal Legbar Hatching Eggs or Chicks

    Hi all! I'm hoping to start a new OE project and am looking for dark speckled egg-laying Welsummers and Legbars that have more blue than green tone. I hear the Rees line might have stronger blue? I read that somewhere but can't remember where haha. I know that most Welsummers have lost their...

We're now in the final round of our logo contest - the designers have submitted updates based on everyone's incredibly helpful feedback.

    Help! We started a logo design contest, and there were SO many awesome entries! We narrowed it down to 8 from >150, but now we're stuck haha. This is the first phase, so after we pick our favorite 6 designers, we'll work with them to fine-tune their entries until we end up with one winner. What...

    If you were an adult when you got into waterfowl, esp showing/breeding, please share your journey!

    My boyfriend and I are in our 30s, and moved to a new state and started with poultry this spring! He grew up on a horse ranch in Texas, and I've always had a zillion exotic house pets where I lived in Illinois, including pedigreed sugar gliders, so we're both experienced with caring for &...

    French White Muscovy Ducks and Pilgrim Geese available in Northern Michigan/Suttons Bay

    Would you ever consider shipping goslings or hatching eggs? I live in Wisconsin near Green Bay and am hoping to add some genetic diversity to my Pilgrim flock next year. If not, no worries!

    ISO Ancona Ducklings & Narragansett or Bourbon Red Poults in Wisconsin

    Hi all! I'm hoping to expand my flock in the spring and thought I'd try here instead of the big hatcheries :) I live in Wisconsin near Green Bay and would prefer to pick up babies after the heartache of a bad shipment last year. Looking for: Ancona ducklings - 1 chocolate drake & 5 unrelated...

    ISO Female Chicks in NE Wisconsin

    I ended up finding chicks at a swap - a lady who runs a feed store had a stall with a huge variety of chicks she got from a hatchery (not sure which hatchery)

    Keeping Separate Breeding Groups

    Random dumb question of the day: how do those of you who keep & hatch multiple breeds keep them separate for breeding season and about how long do you do that? We have Pilgrims now and realllllly want Romans and/or Sebastopols. Since all these breeds are so rare, we’re thinking maybe we’ll...

    ISO Female Classic or Tufted Roman Goslings

    Thank you! I was afraid to bombard that one person who responded in that thread anymore than he/she already was haha

    ISO Female Classic or Tufted Roman Goslings

    I had a Classic Roman and a couple Pilgrims on order through a hatchery but panicked and canceled after a bad bad bad experience with USPS sending chicks a day late, along with multiple late/squished shipments of bugs. I found local Pilgrims and picked up an adorable pair of baby girls, but I...
