    I'm looking for a trio of NZ breeders for meat production. I travel frequently between Western Maine and Albany NY. Anyone know of breeders in the general travel path?

    Any help would be, well, helpful.

    Thanks!

    Thanks MaineChickens. I did contact Perly Emery a while ago by email but hadn't heard back. I'll try calling him since email addresses sometimes get changed or abandoned. He had New Zealands listed under the breeds he raises and I think I remember seeing a NZ white of his at the Freyburg fair. He's located in the next town from here.

    I do have my heart set on New Zealand Whites. They're what I raised back in the 70s and 80s and I grew to like the breed.

    Yeah, I found out the hard way that picking up the phone works better when you are looking for stock. I had many returned emails for bad addresses for most breeders. Or the infamous over limit return. P-I-T-A.

    Perley is really a nice guy and if he doesn't have what you want, he'll know who does and send you to them.

    The white satin meat mutts I have from him have some NZ in them. bigobunnys... make my rex look like mini-rex.
