We have been raising chickens for over 35 years. These birds are bred for their feathers. Having tied
flies for over 54 years has made it possible for me to improve the quality of feathers we use and raise.
We sell neck and saddle hackle. Grades, colors, and prices are available from our catalog.
WE DO NOT HAVE ANY EGGS, CHICKS OR BIRDS FOR SALE
I DO PLAN ON SELLING THE WHOLE FLOCK BY 2025 FOR $50,000. THIS IS MY BLOOD LINE
WHICH I DEVELOPED. SOMEONE WISHING TO START A FEATHER BUSINESS WITH THIS
FLOCK WOULD BE ABLE TO RAISE ENOUGH BIRDS IN SEVERAL YEARS TO MORE THEN PAY
FOR THEIR BUSINESS INVESTMENT. PRESENTLY I AM STILL BUILDING UP MY INVENTORY .
Roosters we raise are for dry fly use. Hens we raise are used for wet flies and nymphs.
We have been raising dry fly roosters with long saddles that salons use for hair extensions. We do
have some packaged feathers by length for salons and tiers that want only long feathers.
BECAUSE SEVERAL PEOPLE HAVE ASKED FOR DETAILS ON THE PURCHASE OF THE FLOCK.
YES, THE PRICE INCLUDES ALL THE BIRDS, FEEDERS, CAGES, WATERERS, INCUBATORS,
AND ETC. YOU WOULD HAVE TO PUT A DEPOSIT IN THE SPRING OF THE YEAR TO BE
CONSIDERED THE BUYER. ($5,000 NOT REFUNDABLE) IT WOULD BE BEST TO BE ABLE TO
PICK UP THE BIRDS BY NOVEMBER FIRST OF THE SAME YEAR. YOU WOULD BE THE SOLE
OWNER OF THIS BLOOD LINE. THERE WOULD BE ABOUT 500 BIRDS READY TO PROCESS BY
NOVEMBER.(DEPENDING ON THE HATCH) THERE IS ALSO A TRUCK LOAD OF EQUIPMENT.
FULL PAYMENT WOULD TAKE PLACE BEFORE ANYTHING LEAVES THIS FARM. PLEASE
KEEP IN MIND THAT A WARM CLIMATE IS NOT A GOOD PLACE FOR RAISING GENETIC
HACKLE. IF, YOU LIVE TOO FAR AWAY, DO NOT BOTHER. MORE THEN ONE DAY TRAVEL
WOULD BE TOO HARD ON THE BIRDS. THE BEST TYPE OF BUILDING FOR THE BIRDS IS A 100
FOOT GREEN HOUSE TO START WITH. IT SHOULD BE DIVIDED INTO THREE
COMPARTMENTS. IF YOU GET A LOT OF SNOW, IT IS BETTER TO HAVE THE GREENHOUSE
ON A RAISED PAD, SO THE SNOW DOES NOT BUILD UP AGAINST THE GREENHOUSE
WALLS. YOU ONLY NEED TO ADD GREENHOUSES TO EXPAND. I SUGGEST THAT THIS BE A
SIDELINE BUSINESS UNTIL YOU BUILD UP AN INVENTORY AND A CUSTOMER BASE. IT
TAKES NINE MONTHS FOR THE ROOSTERS TO BE FEATHERED OUT. YOU SHOULD NOT
HAVE ANY OTHER BIRDS ON THE FARM AND YOU SHOULD NEVER CROSS OTHER BIRDS
INTO THIS BLOODLINE. I HAVE ALL THE NATURAL COLORS. CROSSING WITH OUTSIDE
BIRDS COULD SET YOU BACK AT LEAST FIVE YEARS AND OR LOOSE THE GENETIC LINE. I
HAVE NEVER TAKEN THE TIME TO GET THE FULL VALUE OUT OF THIS BUSINESS. I HAVE
TOO MANY IRONS IN THE FIRE. FEEL FREE TO ASK ABOUT THE DEAL. I WILL NOT DISCUSS
THE BREEDING PROCESS AND COLOR CROSSES UNLESS YOU ARE THE BUYER. FOR 50,000
YOU CAN HAVE ONE OF VERY FEW GENETIC HACKLE FARMS THAT PRODUCE SADDLE
HACKLE FROM 12 TO 16 INCHES IN EVERY NATURAL COLOR.
