    Apologies if this has been posted elsewhere on BYC, but I looked and do not see it. I think it is important and deserves mentioning.

    http://www.livestockconservancy.org/index.php/heritage/internal/north-american-poultry-census

    Quote: It is a survey asking what varieties you have of breeding poultry. It is important since the last poultry census was done more than 10 years ago. This census is how we know what breeds are common and which are rare. The census is about chickens, turkeys, ducks and geese.

    I know there are so many hard-working breeders here. I hope you participate. It would show how far breeds have come in the last several years. This information has the potential to save breeds from extinction and make history. Please share with all poultry breeders you know, especially those working with heritage/rare breeds.

    Has anyone here participated in the census? What breeds are you working with?

    Nope! Just another tactic by the government to get into you business to find out what you got.

    So they say.
    I answered their questions but gave them no personal information.
