This is perhaps the most thorough treament of chicken culture from A to Z that I have seen. Even the experienced breeder will learn some things.

John Soper is one of the leading waterfowl breeders in the UK and I am proud to call him a friend. His site contains information on the many colors of Call being developed in the UK, among other interesting articles on management and care.

This is a site constructed and run by poultry fanciers from the UK. Good pictures and some nice articles.

Articles About Acorn Hollow Bantams

Having had ducks since I was eleven years old, I cannot imagine being without them. At one time or another, I have owned almost all types of waterfowl, turkeys, and chickens in both the standard (large) and bantam (miniature) sizes.

I became interested in showing waterfowl in my late teens and have done so continuously for the last forty five years. While my first love has always been waterfowl, (ducks and geese) I have bred and shown bantam chickens for the last twenty years or so as well as continuing to work with my established strains of bantam ducks. I am a member of the N.P.I.P. program. My approval number is 558.
