A bit about me & the birds

I grew up on a large Dairy Farm & have been around livestock all my life. I have kept poultry since childhood, my first bantams being a trio of Silkies when I was 6. Little did I know that this trio  would be the start of my love of poultry, which lasts to this day.


From keeping many types of birds, everything from hens, ducks & geese to pheasants & finches, I now concentrate on three breeds of true bantams. These being Dutch Bantams, Barbu D'Anvers & Rosecomb Bantams. I breed these for showing & pleasure.


I hope you enjoy looking at my photographs. These are all taken by myself & are of my own birds. The cameras I used for the older photos are a Fuji S5000 & a Fuji S6500. I now use a Nikon D5100, a Panasonic FZ38 & a Panasonic TZ5.   There are lots more photos on the "Photo gallery" page.



             See you around the shows,

                                                                 Jane
