Thank you.

    For 42 years I've been raising hackle chickens, and enjoying every minute of it.  Then, on April 23, 2022 my life changed.  Medical issues arose in my family that would require my full attention.  No longer would I be able to spend 3-5 hours a day in a chicken barn & still deal with the issues at hand.

    What I thought would be one of the hardest decisions I'd ever make became one of the easiest.  On April 24, 2022 I walked downstairs, unplugged the incubators, put roughly 2,300 eggs in buckets, and dumped them in the back field.  And, just like that, I was done raising hackle chickens--amazingly, without a single regret.

    No, I am not out of business yet.  I have a huge inventory of capes to sell that should last at least 3-5 years.  But, when those are gone, that's it!

    I sincerely want to thank each and every one of you that patronized my business.  From the tyer who purchased just one cape to those who purchased hundreds over the years, THANK YOU!!!

    I hope you will continue doing business with me until my supply is gone.

    I've had a good run.  Beginning the day I picked up my first birds from Doc Fried in 1979 to the day I unplugged the incubators, I've been totally fascinated by it all.  The friends I've made along the way have made the whole journey even more special.  So, again, thank you and may God bless you all.
