Boy that looks like a fun place to visit. One of the County fairs here in Vermont has a really nice rare breeds exhibit every year...just animals that lived here in VT in the past. Love it!

Deb Robson

Susan, I would love to visit that county fair!


fascinating, your setting up a marketing system for rare breed fleece. i am thinking about the "new economy" and this kind of thing seems to be at the top of the list -- new age commodity broker? it's a good thing, keep us posted.

Deborah Robson

Jeannette, that's an intriguing observation. While I have no interest in being a commodity broker, I do have a tremendous interest in helping individuals who have fiber connect with those who want to use it.


Silkies were some of my favourite chickens. I had white, brown & black hens. They couldn't exactly fly, but when the henhouse rabbit decided to have some fun chasing them they would flutter their skirts and jump in the air, shrieking like girls (!). Every year one hen would "set" and the others would lay their eggs in the nest with her. She got to keep the chicks when they hatched.

Deb Robson

Neat, Shelagh! I love the personalities of both breeds and individuals within the breeds. Thanks for the stories!
