Adult Birds Price List


Adult Birds Price List 2017

THANK YOU TO ALL who have purchased stock from the Preservation Center over the years and thus helped finance our mission to save some of the world's rarest varieties of domestic waterfowl from extinction.  We could not do this work without you!




WE SHIP ADULT BIRDS throughout the United States via insured Express Mail. (See Shipping Adults for details.)  For their comfort and well-being, we ship birds only during cool weather--primarily October through February or until we are sold out.  For the best selection, adults can be ordered in the spring for fall delivery. When ordering in the spring or early summer, a minimum deposit of 25% is required to reserve birds for the fall.  The cancellation fee for adult orders is $7.50/bird.  Adults can be picked up at the farm by appointment only.  (If picked up at the farm, we often have a few adults available starting in June or July.)

TO INSURE THEIR HEALTH AND WELL-BEING, our birds are fed premium quality feeds, are raised in clean, spacious pastures and pens; and are routinely blood-tested and inspected by the Oregon Department of Agriculture. We work very hard to make sure that the birds we sell are healthy and will be productive. However due to the many factors beyond our control once they leave us, we cannot guarantee their productivity or longevity.

ALL ADULT BIRDS ARE CAREFULLY GRADED according to their breed standard and priced accordingly.  The Elite Show Birds and some rare varieties are in high demand so it is a good idea to order as early as possible for the best selection.  Following is a list of the various grading level specifications:

  • Utility Breeder Quality:  Suitable for general home and farm use.

  • Show Breeder Quality:  Although not show birds themselves, these birds have the genetics and characteristics which should allow them to produce show quality offspring.

  • Show Quality:  These show birds can also be used for breeding.  All show birds are graded on a point system based on their breed standards and priced according to their point totals.

  • Elite Show Quality:  These are the cream of the crop and are sold by private treaty.  Phone or e-mail for details on specific birds.


REPORTS OF EXCELLENT WINS  by our customers come in every year from across North America.  A few of the highlights include:  Reserve Bird In Show at the  American Poultry Association's 2005 National Show with 2800 birds competing;  Grand Champion Waterfowl at the 1700 bird  Wisconsin International Show the fall of 2006;  and Best Bird In Show at the historic 2006 joint American Poultry Association and American Bantam Association National with 11,640 birds entered in November.  At the 2008 Canadian APA National, the Champion Waterfowl and Reserve Bird of Show was a Khaki Campbell purchased from us Spring 2008.
