Just wondering how long folks have raised poultry and what breeds they have raised. We have always had chickens. On the big farm it was my "chore" to feed the chickens. At one point I had over 200 chickens, several ducks,a gaggle of geese, a dozen bantams and 300+ Pharaoh Quail. Mom made me sell some at that point. Started showing at about age 18. Been 28 years with exhibition poultry. Still learning from some of the great breeders. The more I learn, the more I realize how little I really knew. I started with barnyard mixed chickens. My first Exhibition type was Buff Orpington LF and Sebright Bantam. I then acquired some Buff Orpingtin Bantams. Have had variouys breeds over the years, but always go back to the Buff Orpington. Anything Buff colored works in my book! However, the Buckeye has grown on me. Edit note: The window loaded before I finished the poll. If you have raised poultry longer than 20 years just vote on the last answer.
