    Re: oregon Gamefowl

    Read through forums I know a few guys who are on here that live in Oregon, I used to live up there but Oregon doesn't have fowl friendly weather!! I can't give you there info because your new no one can just give you info unless u talk to them first! Do some research and you will find some. Good luck bro.

    Just leave them outside the ones that get sick do your culling for you. Snow rain doesn't bother them just give them shelter and a wind break and you will be fine.

    Mine were fine living in
    LaPine other than the water freezing it was good. Not a lot of pests and such with the cold. Never had mites or worms.

    I raised them for years when I had them before, and I live in the coldest spot in Ore. They raise them in upper NY so why not here. Mine seem to do quite well in the cold.

    We got roundpens and howling winds and drifting snow in the winter...All you need is a small shed for yourself and a bunch of thick plastics wrapped around the pens and give them snowcones instead of water and you will be ok.

    Oregon a pretty big state with at least 3 different type weather. Not all year I mean all at the same time. Coast, valley, and eastern. I lived in the valley, Wonderful climate for birds,.

    I visit Oregon every year and wish I could find some farms up there so I can talk chicken. My sister lives near where Mel Sims use to live, I wish he was still there. Does anyone know of anyone still breeding his blood in that area?

    You got to get feeding down to lots of whole corn in the winter I also feed soaked oats year round.in the summer with the soaked oats they drink a little less water and in the winter when the waterers freeze they get hydration from the oats.it is nice where I live 100+ degree summers a good cold winter with some snow spring and fall good weather.not a lot of wind.

    I think there is one in Aumsville OR, called Circle C Farm owner Steve Clark but that was few years ago I dont know if he still breeds them! There used to be a ranch out there In Grants Pass named Gurschke's Game farm. I think they had Toppy's, Japs, Asil and other American fowl..... Those were the only ones that I could remember...

    What I didn't like about Oregon was that the majority of the population frown upon you especially if you own game fowl and the color of your skin is brown...... That's why I moved to CA.....
