(although more per breed than many places that have lots of breeds). It would be great to only have a few breeds but in ourlocation with so few breeders in Scotland we can't. However we will be concentrating our selection efforts on certain breeds we feel need more work. We will rely on other breeders having favourites and getting fresh lines from them if the need arises. So all of us that are involved in the future of utility poultry will now be reliant on there being a number of people doing the same as us so that nationally there will be a wide enough quality gene pool.
On this website we aim to explore the history of each breed in this country - what the best lines have been and what the characteristics were that the great breeders looked for.
