from The Livestock Conservancy

This critically important project will focus on breeding populations of domestic poultry (purebred breeds or landraces), including chickens, ducks, geese, and turkeys. The census will enable The Livestock Conservancy to understand how poultry populations are faring in North America and guide future conservation efforts.

We invite anyone who manages breeding flocks, small or large, to complete the 2021 Poultry Census. The greater the participation, the more precise the picture of poultry populations in North America. Responses will remain anonymous, but you may opt to share your contact information with The Livestock Conservancy. This will help identify breeders who hold flocks of high conservation value, which are important to the long-term genetic diversity of endangered poultry breeds. A detailed summary of census results will be shared following analysis of collected data.
