This critically important project will focus on breeding populations of standard-bred poultry, including chickens, ducks, turkeys, and geese, will enable us to understand how poultry populations are faring in North America. Results from the census will guide conservation efforts for years to come.

Many of these breeds are historically significant and represent irreplaceable genetics that may be essential to the future of agriculture. Even as backyard poultry keeping becomes more popular, many of the less common or more challenging breeds are now in real danger of extinction.
 
We invite all producers who manage breeding flocks to participate in the survey. Your responses will remain anonymous. A detailed summary of the results will be shared following the analysis of the data.

Starting counting your chickens, ducks, geese, and turkeys and watch your inbox for an email later this month with more details about how to participate in the 2021 Poultry Census, sponsored by Murray McMurray Hatchery.
