    2013 Poultry sale list of hatching eggs, chicks, poults, ducks and geese:
    All poultry at Good Shepherd are standard bred birds raised to meet the Standards of the American Poultry Association. Frank Reese has been raising, breeding, hatching and showing poultry for of 50 years. All the poultry raised at Good Shepherd can be trace back to known old American flocks. We have no factory genetics on our farm. All the birds, chicks and egg being sold are for breeding stock and not for just egg and meat. The main reason for selling our birds is to help people get started breeding and raising their own birds. We work very hard to keep our standard bred poultry at the highest of level for standard bred poultry meat production and eggs production. Many people are now calling standard bred poultry heritage poultry today but their real name is standard bred.

It is always best to buy poultry from a known breeder who has work hard to preserve and maintain an old line of poultry.

    It is always best to come to the farm to pick up your birds. Give us a chance to teach about the birds you are buying. If you wish us to ship live birds we will only ship by air. The flight must be a direct flight to a major airport with no flight changes. You will have to pay to have us drive them to the airport and the cost of shipping.

    We live in west central Illinois and I am a freind of Danny's. We have purchased Dark Brahma's from him in the past and in fact, Danny took me to your farm about 10 years ago to look at birds. We are now interested in Barred Rocks and we are looking for a source of high quality, healthy genetics. Would it be possible to post some recent pictures of your breeding stock?
    I travel for work and have a customer in Great Bend, KS so if we do purchase bredding stock, eggs or day old's delivery is no problem.
    Thank you and I look forward to your response!
