THE STORY:

With the commercialization of Sweden’s poultry flocks in the last half of the 20th Century, this breed almost became extinct. A couple of decades ago remnant flocks were identified in three small, rural Swedish villages and a focused effort was made to save the breed. By the late 1980s fewer than 500 birds existed in the world. Today, about a thousand Swedish flower hens live in about fifty scattered flocks. After hatching nine chicks three weeks ago, I learned about the breed and just hatched 15 more. The problem is that monsoon season is here and the shed I had constructed a coop in is taking tons of water. The roof beams are rotted and beyond repair, so your donations will go to supplies and labor for a new coop per online design specs. Please help the chicks get a decent roof over their heads. The Swedish Flower chicks all over the world will benefit from your help in funding one more flock of this rare and amazing breed. You can read more about them at http://greenfirefarms.com/store/category/chickens/swedish-flower-hens/

Friends, crowdrise adds an optional fee by default. I want you to know you can opt out of that by clicking it and selecting the opt out option. Here is a screen shot of what I'm talking about. http://goo.gl/yujVsn   Thanks so much for helping the chicks. Tamra
