    I am looking for breeders of rare or heritage breeds in Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Massachusetts. I have ordered chicks from hatcheries but I am also looking for some older birds. Any information would be appreciated. [​IMG]

    I've had good luck posting on the state thread; usually regulars posts there and have suggestions, or someone lurking may respond.

    I just attended the Boston Poultry show in N Oxford, MA. A huge turnout, complete with a free list of the people with entries and the breeds they have and phone numbers. THere are a number of shows in MA and RI, perhaps CT too. Try the show section as well. Big show in Springfield , in Jan, I think.

    Sorry not very detailed; I'm new to this. GL

    We are in NH, but we frequently make our way to RI as we do work with Coggeshall Farm museum (we are working on the possibility of doing a Chickenstock there in the Spring). We raise/breed American Dominiques, SC Red Dorkings, and Speckled Sussex.

    Very new here and I hope I'm not intruding but I'm in Ct. and am also looking for breeders in the same area. I'd like to find some Araucanas, (black); Jersey giants (black); and Shamos.......I wish I had known of the Boston show but will be the Springfield show.What breeds are you looking for ?

    Bantam Cochin, Sumatras, Silver Laced Wyandottes, Brahmas, and Cochins

    Very difficult to find anything other than Red and Black Sex links in my area.​
