The Cluck and Quack
Poultry Club encourages the cultivation of Standard ("Pure Bred") Birds and animals
to conserve Heritage Breeds. The club expresses its ethical concern as

raising poultry, waterfowl, pigeons and other exotic and domestic
animals and birds in order to exchange information, provide contacts and

critters, to purchase and sell them and opportunities for
members to display them for judging purposes.
