What a season!

The breeding season is over and our '12 show season officially kicked off yesterday at the White River Poultry Show in Spencer, IN. We had a very good hatch of Welsh Harlequins this year and because of that, we have decided to cut back on some of the other breeds a little bit in order to make sure we have enough space for them. We focus primarily on the Welsh Harlequins, and there are many nice females from this year we have decided that we should add to that flock and have even more breeding females for the '13 breeding season.

Micah's Birds

As many of you know, our son, Micah has his own little flock of birds that he enjoys. He is VERY opinionated when it comes to poultry, and has some very interesting ideas of what appeals to him as "pretty" or "cool". He has the Magpie Call ducks that are pictured somewhere already on the blog, in addition to those, he also has a Showgirl breeding pen set up currently with a white Silkie cock in with a splash Silkie hen and a white Showgirl hen. He has a breeding quad of Birchen Modern Games, in LARGEFOWL. As well as a Birchen Modern Game bantam cockerel and a white Silkie cockerel/pullet (we still haven't figured out what sex the little Silkie is, but it is still really young.) I will try to get nice pictures of the Moderns for you all to enjoy...
