    I was thinking about getting a bunch of Partridge Chantecler's, as they are listed under "critical" with the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy. I read in one of my books that they started the Rare Breed Poultry Conservation Project and offer assistance to anyone willing to make a long term commitment to one of their targeted breeds. Do any of you know anything about this. I looked on the ALBC website and didn't see anything about it. But I figured I should look into it.

    Thanks for any information.
