Saturday we drove to Mt. Vernon, Ohio, to take custody of our new — if miniscule — poultry yard breeding stock:  two dozen chicks of a breed called ‘Buckeye’, Ohio natives, and fifteen Silver Appleyard ducklings, from Jordan River Farm, a Sustainable Poultry Network member farm owned by Nathan and Jodi Obardier.  Our concerns about GMO-fed poultry and infertility have prompted us to seek out organic breeding stock; now we’ll know where our babies come from, and with the Obardiers and the SPN for resources, we hope to breed for excellence.  Wish us luck!chicks1week
