    I may have missed someone posting info on the above source for chicks and hatching eggs. I thought that Danny Padgett was the manager. Anyway are they still operating and do they have a web site and or some email or phone numbers to contact.

    Thanks BYC ers for your help.

    Just out of curiosity, did anyone ever visit their farm or know what they are doing with it. I saw it online once and was impressed with how many pens they had for each breed.

    Looks like they threw all their llamas and sheep together too. Looked on google maps. Must be selling the entire farm...

    I was there when they dispersed. The size of the operation was impressive. However, the planning was poor. The buildings and Call duck pens were cheaply constructed. No treated lumber.Buildings were not built with winter weather in mind.

    Amen. The entire operation could have been planned better. Danny walked into a time bomb.

    I remember the grief that some of the long lost gone BYCers gave Danny....he just didn't know what he was walking into!

    Its sure is a shame the whole operation had to come to an end due to poor planning. I think they just recently updates Google maps and the roofs of buildings are missing, the rest of their livestock is just thrown together out back in small fields. Kinda worries me.... I feel bad for Danny because it could have been a success.

    It was my understanding that the owner got ill. Several still have their stock and lines. We have some in our large fowl Buff, Black and Blue Orpingtons and our Buff Wyandotte Bantams.
