How long have you owned chickens?

I'm 62. grew up on the same farm where we now raise chickens. We always had chickens.

How many chickens do you own?

150 to 200

What breed of chickens do you own?

Penesdensca, Java, Black, Blue and Splash Marans, Silver & Gold laced Wyndottes, Campines, Colonial Sussex, Amerucanas, crested creme legbar, Rhodebars and others

What do you like most about owning chickens?

The results of improvement breeding. Most of our heritage breeds have degraded over the past 6 to 8 decades to the point they only resemble the breed in coloring. I hope to restore some of these breeds.

How many people (other than yourself) have you helped get started owning chickens?

Maybe 50.

Introduction

I'm a geologist that established a small hatchery, near Austin, dedicated to breeding rare and heritage chickens. We hope to help avoid extinction by placing them in backyards across Texas.
