SPPA Breeders Directory

The Society for Preservation of Poultry Antiquities’ 2008 Breeders Directory will be mailed to members in September. The latest edition includes new articles on breeding, shipping adult fowl, chickens in America, saving our heritage poultry, successful incubation and more.

The Breeders Directory is an invaluable tool for historic breed poultry keepers. Historic breeds have become rare and finding the individuals who keep themsuch as these Black Cochins, can be difficult. The Breeders Directory compiles that information. These birds belong to Tim Lockett and the photo is from http://www.feathersite.com/.

The Directory lists members in alphabetical order by last name, by state and by what they breed. Listings include whether and how they will ship, drop off at shows or invite prospective purchasers to their farms. “Our Directory is the most useful tool we publish,” said Mary Ann Harley, SPPA Second Vice President, who compiled the information for the directory. “Where else can you find this information in one book ready for your use? You won't want to be without this Directory.”

It is available to nonmembers for $10. SPPA membership is $15 annually. Contact Dr. Charles Everett, 1057 Nick Watts Rd., Lugoff, SC 29078 for membership or a copy of the directory.
