Why we drove 5 hours to look at chickens



We took a drive over the Whiting Farms in Delta Colorado to work on some projects with Whiting and to take a peak at more awesome hackle birds.

    Well, we never had it so good! I have a few Metz # 1's that I bought in the 1980's, I don't think they would even make the Pro Grade. Cost is relative, you could not buy what we can buy now for any price in 1985 it just was not there. If you didn't know you would think ok some chicken coops!

    So is Whiting farms sole purpose in life to provide feathers for fly tyers?

    So, did you get some awesome hackle. I am addicted to buying variants I haven't seen before. I have some amazing capes. The hackle on some is longer than some saddles from other companies. I have capes I tie from and capes I just look at. I am going to have to put them in my will. I am getting old now, so I better come up with some people that will appreciate the hackle I have collected! All the best and thanks for the inside look at Whiting Farms. Sean

    You need another video. I would like to see how they process the chickens to keep the blood off the capes. Also the growing pens and the feather treatment.

    Cool video. Friend of mine went there about 20 years ago. Scary thing is Dr Whiting is so good at what he does, who will carry it on,as he has done.

    It sounds like Dr. Whiting is into breed preservation as well? He's breeding La Flèche presumably for preservation rather than flytying or is he also breeding them for research?
