POULTRY CONSERVATION 

Beaucoop Farm started from a little boy's journey with his chicks. It all started with 6 chicks, bought some more, sold several and finished with the lucky 13 and expanded over the years. This has been an amazing venture and learning experience... nothing compares to the school of life.

There are many breeds of poultry that are endangered (see CHICKS for a list.) The lists consists of critical, threatened, watch, recovering and study. Here's a breakdown:

 

Critical: Breeds with fewer than 200 annual registrations in the United States and an estimated global population of less than 500. For rabbits, fewer than 50 annual registrations in the U.S., estimated global population less than 500, fewer than 150 recorded at rabbit shows in the previous 5 years, and 10 or fewer breeders. For poultry, fewer than 500 birds in the U.S., with five or fewer primary breeding flocks (50 birds or more), and an estimated global population less than1,000.

 

Threatened: Breeds with fewer than 1,000 annual registrations in the United States and an estimated global population of less than 5,000. For rabbits, fewer than 100 annual registrations in the U.S., and estimated global population less than 1,000, fewer than 300 recorded at rabbit shows in the previous 5 years, and 11-30 breeders. For poultry, fewer than 1,000 breeding birds in the U.S., with seven or fewer primary breeding flocks, and an estimated global population less than 5,000.

 

Watch: Breeds that present genetic or numberical concerns or have a limited geographic distribution, with fewer than 2,500 annual registrations in the United States and an estimated global population less than 10,000. For rabbits, fewer than 200 annual registrations in the U.S., estimated global population less than 2,000, fewer than 500 recorded at rabbit shows in the previous 5 years, and 31-60 breeders. For poultry, fewer than 5,000 breeding birds in the U.S., with 10 or fewer primary breeding flocks, and an estimated global population less than 10,000. 

 

Recovering: Breeds once listed in another category, but have exceeded Watch category numbers, and still need monitoring. For rabbits, more than 500 recorded at rabbit shows in the previous 5 years, and more than 60 breeders. 

WE ARE ECO-FRIENDLY

WE UPCYCLE, RECYCLE AND REFURBISH.

WE ARE RUSTIC, AND SIMPLE.

WE ALSO LOVE TO ACCEPT ANY MATERIALS YOU'D LIKE TO DROP OFF (IE WOOD, PALLETS, FENCING, PAINT & MORE!)
