Which came first, the chicken or the egg?

Genesis 1:21

"And God Created great whales,

and every living creature that moveth,

which the waters brought forth abundantly,

after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind:

and God saw that it was good"

     Backwoods Poultry Farm?  What happen to HPBAA?

We have received a lot of email asking about HPBAA.  We are sorry to inform you that the non-profit organization is no longer active.  As the former Secretary/Treasure/Founding Member of HPBAA, I made sure that the breed information as well as some other valuable information was kept on this website. The web address was then forwarded here so that viewers can find it. 

All you have to do is click below by the old HPBAA Logo. 

We hated to see it go, but with your support, this website can be just as useful. 

We are anxiously looking for photos & videos of the Heritage Poultry Breeds listed below.
