Utility Breeds :Keeping Domestic Poultry : An Information Resource

produced by Kintaline Poultry Centre, Benderloch, Oban, Argyll PA37 1QS
These pages are part of a growing information resource inspired by, and based on, decades of helping domestic poultry keepers find the right solutions for their situation and our own experience breeding birds to improve selected UK pure breeds. No "out of the box, one size fits all" here. We recognisethe individuality of your circumstances and have the experience, and the range of answers, to help you and your birds. It is far from complete please bear with us, and return to learn more.

Keeping Domestic Poultry and Waterfowl

The pages on this site are dedicated to providing some of the information we have been passing on to customers here at the farm, over the phone and by email over the past decades.
It will be an ever growing resource, and we hope you will find some useful, down to earth, practical but honest, help.
Domestic poultry and waterfowl keeping has become a increasingly popular hobby, unfortunately much of the information and advice given is over generalised, out of date, misleading or just plain wrong. Several of the newly published books are certainly in this category.
We have many years of experience in keeping a wide range of birds, dealing with the problems in person, and in helping thousands of people to work out their needs, solve their problems and keep their birds in the best conditions.
We have learnt from some of the best poultry folks, from our birds, and from making our own mistakes, and we continue to learn daily. Our experience is not limited to poultry, and our training includes animal behaviour, ecology, welfare and health.
Our main breeding interest has been in the breeds that started out as productive birds, but whose qualities are now much reduced by weak selection, and learning the skills to improve the birds that are left in our national flocks now. We have a pragmatic view of the commericial world and hope to share a wider perspective of the subject than the media like to use to gain attention.

ALL QUESTIONS including whats to come.
