    Please go check out my BYC pages and tell me what you think of my birds. I NEED honest feedback. I want to know what I need to get rid of and what to keep. I want to keep a larger amount of birds than what I have. So, I will only get rid of something AFTER I've got something better in the spring. I am aware of a few things that eventually need to go and its stated in there. I plan on getting more of every breed that I have. I want to slowly filter out the bad and filter in the better. I am also planning getting some Rhode Island Whites and Silver Laced Wyandottes in the spring or sooner if they come along. Let me know what you think overall.....EVERYTHING! THANKS SO MUCH!!!

    Congratulations on wanting to improve the breeds. Culling is emotionally tough, but necessary. Now, about that boyfriend???

    just, advice- If your going to preserve the rare breeds, PLEASE purchase from well known breeders lol, dont buy from hatcheries or anything like that as they maybe crossed and something wrong etc, buying from breeders you would get good fowl. and breed from there on

    Quote:try looking around at the clubs sites for the breeds, im in the same boat where there's no breeders around here, Not even a poultry show. im the only person in the OEGB book in Mississippi, my birds came from 2 different people in Oklahoma, may can find what your looking for at poultry shows near you.
