About

Hi everyone My name is Lauren and I moved out to My mothers Property this Summer ! , It is 105 wonderful Acres , And I have Named is Splash Creek Farm !     I lived out in sandy oregon for a few years and I raised Chicks to sell and once in a wile I would take in Unwanted roosters and other critters and find them homes ,

 I learned that roosters are Amazing ! They are smart and many are very cuddly and Loving critters , Well when I moved out here I decided to open My new home to as Many roosters as I Can care for . 

Stunning Ayam Cemani Hen and Rooster !
Stunning Ayam Cemani Hen and Rooster !

So many roosters are Wonderful and Beautiful animals and end up in the stew pot simply because a lot of places do not allow rooster in city limits , or People end up with more then they need for their Flock of hens , To no fault of heir own , so many Amazing Roosters go as food , ( Yes I know People have to eat) But Their are so many Wonderful breeds and several are on the critical list of becoming no more ,  I thought i should give these beauties a Chance at Life !  I have Found Many breeders that want specific breeds and A lot of 4H kids that will give these boys loving forever homes ! And of course I keep Many Myself :)  

So I take in everyone Unwanted roosters and Trade them Chicks to replaces them so they still get something in return Like a future egg layer ! , I currently get Hatchery chicks and Wish to raise and hatch my own soon , We also keep Lots o egg layers around and sell free range Fresh eggs from happy healthy hens who get to range free on our property no cages or confinement ! 

The goal of doing this on Kick starter is to give You and Me Both something great !    I Have decided to Create a Special Chicken Breed book ! 

Yes I know their are Many Breed Books out their But this one will help Many people ! It will be solely on Identifying breeds As chicks and the Subtle differences on how to tell them apart when so many Look the same  as Babies ! 

Many breeds have very small differences as babies Like wellsummer and   Bielefelder chicks Look almost identical exept the stripe on a wellsummer is slightly darker then on a Bielefelder and have lighter color legs as babies !

 This Breed Book Will be called Splash Creeks Guide to Chick Breeds !    And will identify over 50 Breeds of chickens Or if we Over fund to a stretch goal I can make it over 100 Chicken breeds ! And have Random Facts about the breeds and Full color Photos of them as chicks and adults ! 

Now this Book and Every thing will be Released By Next September at the Very Latest But More then likely it will be Available to Backer as soon as March ! 

Their will also be many other rewards available to backers !  Such as stickers , Posters and calender's  and Fresh Eggs for local backers ! And even Custom Farm Signs Made by Me ! Like this one below ! Not yet Finished for my own farm ! I also Make Handmade Goats milk soaps and Vegan soaps made with Hemp oils :) That will make a great Backer reward:)

What I get from this Project ! 

Well what ill be getting out of this project Is One to Fix  up the old barn on this propery and make is awesome for the chickens to go at night and be safe from preditors and 2 I need to Build a Proper safe quarantine area for now rooster and birds who get brought to me ! We dont just take roosters and hens but also turkeys, ducks, geese and other birds , we do have 3 ponds on the property for the water fowl but each type of bird needs their own safe quarantine  place for the first 30 days with us just to make sure they are healthy and happy .I also want to Build a come More large Chick brooders for the chicks i get in and the ones i hope to hatch in the future ! And last I would love to get a large Cabinet incubator so i can start hatching out wonderful chicks who are not hatchery stock ! This is were you backer come in to Help , You will get many Wonderful things from this and ill be able to continue saving roosters and unwanted poultry from the stew pot ! But i need the funds to make this happen , Currently the fees I collect from selling eggs and chicks go back into the birds on Food , Treats , and Bird health products ! 

So even if you cannot help by Backing Please share this around ! 

We would Love to change this Place around and Make it a Bird paradise !

Risks and challenges

One of the Biggest Risks with Having so many chickens will be the spread of Disease among them , Mainly if a new chicken comes to us sick , The best way to over come this is to Build a Proper Quarantine Place for them :) And we Plan to :)
