    I was wondering if anyone has any amercain heritage poultry breeds? I am wanting to get on waiting lists for some. I'm looking for nice birds not hatchery stock. They must be American breeds. I will take chicks, adults or eggs. Chicks are perfered.

    Some of the breeds i'm looking for are: Rhode Island whites and reds, java's in black, white and mottled,buckeye, Delawares, new hampshire, dominique, plymoth rock(original colors), Hollands , white and partridge Chantecler (yes i know thier canandains) and cubalayas ( yes i know their cuban), jersey giants

    If i am missing any please let me know.

    Also looking for turkeys and ducks.


    Thanks!

    Check out Sandhill Preservation site thats all they sell. You have to get on a waiting list but their birds are very nice. They have a website but you have to order by mail.

    Cubalaya will make a nice addition to your yard. I enjoy mine to the fullest!

    Will you be preserving the breeds, once you have your flocks established?

    The Lamona is a American Heritage Breed that is near extinction or may be extinct. You would be very luck to find any of these , but if you could find anyone out there that has them it would very much be worth breeding them.

    I raise Jersey Giants (black, blues, splash) and also have the RI Red bantams & White Rock bantams. We ship hatching eggs, started birds, and adults. We are from Indiana.

    MandyH You'll shoot your eye out!

    I will have rose cobed rhode island whites, rose combed rhode island reds, and dominique eggs later in the summer. I am still trying to finish culling so they will be the best of the best birds.
