OUR STORY

My love for poultry started at a very young age. I grew up on a poultry farm in 1988 and throughout my entire childhood. My father raised game birds, waterfowl and chickens for various purposes. We contracted pheasants, chucker, and mallard ducks for field trials & bird trainers. We raised birds to sell for meat production, and raised various birds just for fun. So poultry has always been a big part of my life.

 

 

ABOUT LUCKY LITTLE CLUCKERS

IN 2015 MY KIDS WERE OLD ENOUGH TO PARTICIPATE IN 4-H; SO WE JUST BOUGHT SOME DIFFERENT BREEDS OF CHICKS FROM A HATCHERY. AFTER THEIR FIRST FAIR THEY WANTED MORE. THEY LOVED THE IDEA OF RAISING THEIR OWN BIRDS, HATCHING THEIR OWN CHICKS, AND SHOWING THEM. WE DID A LOT OF RESEARCH AND NARROWED DOWN THE BREEDS OF BIRDS THEY WANTED TO RAISE TO BEARDED SILKIES & LARGE FOWL COCHINS. IT TOOK A LITTLE WHILE TO FIND SOME GREAT BREEDERS THAT WERE WILLING TO HELP THE KIDS GET STARTED IN THIS NEW EXCITING JOURNEY.

 

IN THE FALL OF 2015 THE KIDS BOUGHT THEIR VERY OWN SILKIES FROM A LOCAL BREEDER AND IN EARLY 2016 WE PURCHASED OUR FIRST LARGE FOWL COCHINS AND HAD THEM SHIPPED IN FROM NEW YORK. THE KIDS THEN DECIDED THEY WANTED TO TRY OUT SHOWING AT A FEW AMERICAN POULTRY ASSOCIATION SHOWS LOCALLY IN COLORADO. OUR MENTORS PUT SOME GREAT BIRDS IN THE KIDS HANDS AND THE KIDS WALKED AWAY WITH SOME BIG WINS AT THAT SHOW AND THEY NEVER LOOKED BACK.

THERE HAVE BEEN LOTS OF UPS AND DOWNS IN RAISING POULTRY BUT THE LIFE LESONS, THE HARD WORK, DEDICATION AND JOY THESE BIRDS HAVE BROUGHT HAS ALL BEEN WORTH IT. SENSE 2015 WE HAVE EXPANDED OUR PROGRAM TO ALSO RAISE MUSCOVY DUCKS AND BANTAM COCHINS.

 

IN 2018 WE TOOK A BREAK FROM SHOWING TO FOCUS ON OUR LARGE FOWL COCHIN BREEDING PROGRAM AND TO REBUILD OUR SILKIE PROGRAM AFTER A DEVASTATING LOSS. THE KIDS CAME BACK TO THE SHOW WORLD IN 2021 AFTER WAITING FOR COVID TO CALM DOWN AND THEY HIT THE GROUND RUNNING. THEY ACHIEVED GOALS THAT YEAR THAT THEY HAD MADE FROM THE VERY START. WE ARE ALWAYS WORKING TO BETTER OUR PROGRAM AND ALONG THE WAY WE WANT TO HELP THOSE THAT ARE WHERE WE ONCE WERE.
