Large Fowl Moderns  Get Noticed

After 5 generations of hatching ,raising ,selecting  and sorting through hundreds of birds...one of our Modern Large Fowl males made it to champion row at a major show. 2016 cockerel # 63 was chosen Reserve Champion Any Other Standard Breed ( AOSB) at the APA 2016 National held Nov 12& 13 2016  hosted by the Ohio Poultry Breeders Annual " Ohio National " show. Having a bird that you developed go as far as this bird did is a real sense of accomplishment to a breeder. We still have some work to do but am very happy to get this bird on champion row. The next hurdle is to get a bird in the Champion AOSB side and fingers crossed maybe further at a major meet.

My Hobby

From humble beginngs and a pure love for all things alive... I have been blessed to be a part of this great hobby for the past 40 + years. I am lucky to have the support and encouragement of a great family that allows our home and property in Georgetown Ontario Canada to be more than just a place to live but also a place to flourish my love of poultry and all things avian. This hobby, through showing and judging has allowed me to travel through out Canada and the United States as well as the Island Country of Bermuda ,enjoying all the hobby has to offer and meeting great people from all walks of life along the way. I encourage everyone to get involved. The rewards are endless and the friendships are second to none. The birds may be the bond that brings us together but people are the key to the hobby. Troy

Poultry

Over the past 40 + years I have bred and exhibited a large aray of poultry & waterfowl. My main breed is that of Modern Game Bantams of which I have specialized in for over 30 years.Although over the years I have kept all the reconized varieties and some non reconized ones ,I currently breed and exhibit them in following color varieties being Birchen  & Brown Red , BB Red  as well as wehave developed our own strain of Large Fowl Birchen Moderns.

Moderns are the ultimate fanciers creation offering a challenge with many color patterns not to mention a type and style very unique to this breed. They are our passion and the mainstay in our birds that we keep.For the other breeds we keep see the other poultry section.

We exhibit our birds across Canada and United States and have had great sucess over the years.I have acheived my Master Exhibitor Status with the ABA # 422 as of 2011 and still one starred win short of being master breeder of Birchen Modern Games with the ABA . I have acheived my Master Exhibitor Award from the APA back in 2000 and my APA Grand Master Exhibitors Award for SC White Leghorn Large Fowl in 2004( no longer raising them )  and my APA Grand Master Exhibitors Award in Birchen Modern Bantams in 2009.
