I started raising and showing poultry competitively when I was in high school. I have experience with bantam barred Plymouth rocks, white and light brown Leghorns, as well as Cochins. I judged poultry for the Edmond FFA chapter in high school, along with the University of Arkansas where we won the National Collegiate Poultry Judging Contest in November of 2004.
Since then, I have raised several different breeds, mostly from hatcheries, but when I found the opportunity to get into Sumatras, I took it.
