This 73 Year Old Lady Needs Help!

On Friday Dec 8th around 4:00am Judy woke up to find her Barn and Business was going up in flames. For the past 8 years judy has been running a Poultry Hatching and Growing Farm (Poultry Hollow Hatchery). Why does she do it? Because she is the person that lives to help. Judy has given her 2 Grandsons jobs. She has gone above and beyond noy only for family but for strangers as well. Starting the business so her grandkids could work to earn money while still in high school keeping it up and running for 8 years. After all the blood(yes real blood), sweat, and tears from her, son, and grandsons, Judy had to wake up to Devastation! After calling 911 Judy called her son, daughter, and grandsons who all live on the same farm for 35yrs. We all got to the barn to find it completely engulfed in flames and our Mom running in  trying to save chickens. Everyone started helping to save birds, NOT contents and belongings, our priority was the birds! Unfortunately we were only able to save about 100 out of about 2000 and the barn and building around barn are a 100% loss. Not only being a family business it got 73yr old Judy up everyday and has given her something to do. Finding out there is only $15,000 insurance on the barn ( which does not even cover the equipment) because of an error in the size of the barn I have decided to look and ask for help for this Single Mother of 2, Grandmother of 4 and Great Grandmother of 1 so far.

You can see Poulty Hollow's website with video of Judy talking about the farm in an interview.

It has been a LOOOONG HOT SUMMER and bang, now it's winter. We have some great looking kids (chickens) for you to see. My favorite right now are the Mille Fleur Bearded Beligum D'uccle Bantams. OMG, so cute and very sweet. And we are hatching babies to keep you busy during the winter months and by Spring they'll be ready to start laying. Please come see us and our new Chick Nursery. We have a covered porch, so come even if it's raining. If you are not a turkey eater for Thanksgiving, we have some HUGE meat chickens ready for your table. But you've got to be able to butcher! We have a litter of "Great Heelers", Dad's a Great Pyrenees and Mom's a Blue Heeler. If you've met Strawberry, that's what they will be like. GREAT FARM DOG!! $100 each for our building fund, 1st puppy shot and dewormed. And again, thank you!!

My thanks again to everyone. We are still struggling but I think I may see a light at the end of the tunnel!! For anybody that has been thinking about starting a BANTAM flock, we are ready for you with Light, Buff and Dark Brahmas, D'Uccles, Frizzles and Cochins. And speaking of Cochins, we have the rare Standard (or some people call it Giant) Cochins. I am so very proud of the extensive inventory of chickens we have to offer at this time!! And thankful for the joy it brings me raising them for you. We are still in the rebuilding process and are still temporarily set up, but because of all of you, we are trying to make it happen. I read your messages and knew how much you needed a place to buy healthy chickens.
Thank you,
Judy

Please check out website inventory page, finally have our website back. We have breeds that are very rare, even long tailed chickens. Probably the best selection ever and I'm loving it!!
And we have French Pearl guineas and a bunch of different breeds of ducks.
Thank you,
Judy
