Articles About Acorn Hollow Bantams

Having had ducks since I was eleven years old, I cannot imagine being without them. At one time or another, I have owned almost all types of waterfowl, turkeys, and chickens in both the standard (large) and bantam (miniature) sizes.

I became interested in showing waterfowl in my late teens and have done so continuously for the last forty five years. While my first love has always been waterfowl, (ducks and geese) I have bred and shown bantam chickens for the last twenty years or so as well as continuing to work with my established strains of bantam ducks. I am a member of the N.P.I.P. program. My approval number is 558.


Lou's Tips


Poultry meds usually have an expiration date which should be observed. also, be careful to store meds propery. Storing in sub freezing temperatures, for example, will ruin some medications.


The News

PLEASE NOTE: There has been a sizable increase in Express Mail rates. I must, therefore raise my flat rate for two birds to $90  three and four birds to $110 as of now.

All Mandarins sold out until fall. Early orders will be a must to assure that pairs are available. see price list to place an order.
