I’m interested in the Ixworth chickens. I’m a new chicken owner and have five Easter eggers and one Jersey Giant. I am interested in the Ixworth, because it’s considered an endangered species. I would like to start raising them and help their numbers to increase again. Can anyone point me the right direction to accomplish this?
