    The title says it all. I want to raise some oriental games and try the avian aqua miser waterer, also have about 100 chickens at one time. Get some narragansett turkeys and peafowl, and many other things I can't remember now.

    I want to have enough money to get some Cream Leg Bars. Thyey are just so neat but out of my price range right now. I also want to get an old camper that I can make into a chicken coop. My DH is a wonderful man just not very handy at building chicken coops and ours are not what I want but he wont let me do it myself. I would prefer one that still has the furnace in it so I could run it on low just to keep the waters from freezing. I am looking but so far no luck unless I want to pay alot of money that I dont have right now. Oh well hopefully I have a long time before I die. [​IMG]

    Ah, what a wonderful question!

    I personally want to move within the next 5 years to a ranch type of property. Once there, I'd like to start farming Alpacas, and seriously work on breeding either OEGs, or developing my own line of birds.

    Additionally, I'd like to farm turkeys as well. Preferably a smaller breed farmed organically.

    Our poultry bucket list?

    I'd like to fly to Norway, pick out some of the Pomeranian Geese that I saw on TV, and import them into the USA.

    Just as soon as I win that lottery........

    I want to develop a breed that doesn't crow and lays copius amounts of yellow, red and orange eggs.

    Oh yeah and then I'll be able to afford Cream Legbars.

    I would like to have breeder pens set up for year round use, I mean, set up to my specifications and not my husbands idea of how things should be done.
    I would like to import some good quality dorkings and la fleche.

    Quote:I have a friend in Northern Missouri with an amazing number of varieties of LaFleche.
    I could PM the info to you.

    Yeah - breeder pens. I keep building them and learn as I go. Redoing all nest boxes now to trap nests.
