Matt is an advocate of historic breeds and has kept Dominiques, as shown here in a photo from Bryan K. Oliver of the Dominique Club of America,http://dominiquechickens.org,
His bantam breeds were: Single Comb Rhode Islands Red, Rose Comb Rhode Island Red, Buckeye, Black Langshan, Kentucky Speck, White-Faced Spanish, White Rock, Barred Rock, White and Black LaFleche, Buff Columbian Cochin and various varieties of Silkies.
Matt plans to bring several hundred hatching eggs to colleague Laura Haggarty of Pathfinders Farm, http://www.pathfindersfarms.com/, to incubate for him. She serves with him as secretary of the Bluegrass Poultry Association, of which Matt is president. She posted a notice of Matt’s disaster and asked for those who wish to help to offer Matt replacement stock to help him get started again.
Please support this dedicated poultry breeder. I shall report on his progress as information becomes available.
