You must own or be willing to own a large breed of chicken, waterfowl, or game bird. You must be willing to accept the definition of your breed category as described on the definitions of our home page. There are two categories of which your breed will fall into. They are:

This may not apply to those in other countries.
You must be willing to provide us with the truth regarding history, lineage, and all background of the breed you are obtaining or have. This will require a photo of your stock or a link to a website where we may go view them.
You must be willing to dedicate yourself to a breed you have for a long period of time. The most sought after members are those who have been dedicated to the breeding of a certain breed for a number of years.
You must be willing to communicate with the founding members of this site and those that contact you for the breed or breeds you represent on a regular basis.
You must conduct yourself with integrity in the sale and promoting of the breed or breeds that you represent.
