    Hi! It occurred to me as we are starting our small backyard flock - are there any heritage/rare/disappearing breeds? I would be interested in supporting those who are trying to preserve a breed.

    Type 'heritage breeds' in the search bar at the top of the page. Do an on site search and many threads will appear. Take a look and see if anything catches your interest. It costs no more to feed a quality bird than to feed an inferior bird.

    Are heritage breeds by definition endangered or rare?
