I am Jeremy and I live near Green Bay Wisconsin. My family says that I have been interested in chickens since I was a baby. They tell stories of me sitting on my grandparents lawn and crawling up to the chicken yard and sitting there for hours without making a sound. My grand mother bought me my first flock when I was 12 and I have had chickens ever since then. When I was 18 my neighbor introduced me to showing, and I have been breeding and showing ever since. I now work with the 4H program and I show when I find time.
Currently I have 3 small breeding pens (4 birds each) of Blue and Black d'Anvers. I also am working with a local 4H member to breed two flocks of White Polish bantams. He is breeding the bearded variety, and I am breeding the non-bearded variety. Currently he has my breeding stock and is crossing them onto his bearded stock. We are doing this because I can't find any quality birds for my flock.
I am currently working on selling my home. Once that is done, I plan to have both my breeds with me. Eventually I would like to have a couple large breeding pens of each variety. Maybe 25 birds in each pen.
