I should be have some upcoming hatches of wyandotte chicks listed every weekend in May at www.featherauction.com/, I will try to post a link to the auction on this website and do a better job of keeping you updated..promise.
On the good news front hatching is going great here on the farm and I have never had better fertility this early..so I am excited.
Dont forget that I always have nice older stock for sale in the late spring and fall.
Also I have no call ducks for sale at this time...sorry.

Dont forget I will have nice started pairs of BLRW, SLW and Chocolate Wyandotte Bantams available toward the in of April 2013. You can contact me for details..
Our new E-book "Breeding and Culling Blue Laced Red Wyandottes" is now available.
I receive many emails each week seeking advice on breeding this variety, so we decided to put all the information that we have acquired over the last 7 years into a E-book and make it available to you.
It started out innocent enough....we bought some land out in the country and my wife kept talking about these "cute" bantam ducks and Wyandottes that she had seen as a kid growing up in the middle of no where. I always loved having animals and what the heck my mom and dad always kept some chickens and ducks on our small farm when I was growing up.
So after much searching we did finally locate a pair of gray call ducks and some Blue Laced Red Wyandottes, I even made my wife and kids a nice bench to set on while they watched the chickens and call ducks chase bugs in their coops. Then we attended a poultry show and we purchased a nice pair of calls here and there and couldn't pass up the beautiful SQ Silver Laced Wyandottes, by the time I found a nice pair of Butterscotch Call ducks we had full blown call duck fever..now we are hooked with no cure in sight. The little buggers are very addictive to watch and raise, so now we would like to pass the same call duck and Wyandotte fever on to you..
I hope you will browse through our website and let us know if there is anything you need from our small waterfowl and poultry farm.

Raising the poultry and
Pictured on the left is one of the brooders we currently use....
The plastic tubs from Wal-Mart work great for call ducklings.....just make a elevated floor out of hardware cloth so the little pigs stay dry. Hang a 100 watt bulb and you have a very inexpensive brooder. We cut a large square in the lid and attach hardware cloth. The light can rest on top of the hardware cloth. Keeps out the drafts and the young kids.....
