SPPA Breeders Directory Available.

The Society for Preservation of Poultry Antiquities (SPPA) announces the 2001-2002 edition of the Breeders Directory, a comprehensive catalog of rare poultry and the people who breed them. Copies were mailed to all current members of the SPPA. Non-members may purchase a copy by sending $8.00 to Glenn Drowns, SPPA Secretary, 1878 230th Street, Calamus, IA 52729-9659. SPPA membership is $10 per year, $15 for two years. Directories are free with the purchase of membership, which also includes the SPPA newsletter, The Bulletin, published quarterly and filled with information about heirloom fowl.

The Breeders Directory contains an extensive listing of sources for large chickens and bantams, including exotic fowl such as Shamo (nine colors) and Toumaru Long Crowers, plus American heirlooms such as the Black Java (a dozen sources) and the more modern Delaware (nine sources), and continental favorites such as Barnevelder, Welsummer and Maran. You'll find sources for 39 varieties and color variations of rare turkeys in the Directory. Also included are exhaustive listings of ducks and geese, as well as guineas and peafowl, pigeons and game birds. If you're trying to locate a particular breed in the U.S. or Canada, or find a breeder of rare poultry in your vicinity, this is the place to start.
