Turkey Critical List
Members of the Society for the Preservation of Poultry Antiquities have inspired me and taught me about chickens. They are the gentlemen and women of poultry keeping. They are unceasingly generous with their time and always willing to share their knowledge. Everyone with an interest in chickens will benefit by joining SPPA.
SPPA is a 501c(3) nonprofit organization. Its mission is to protect and preserve, for historical, educational and recreational purposes and in the public interest, standard-bred domesticated poultry, waterfowl, turkeys and guineas. As of January 2011, the latest edition of the Breeders Directgory is available. It lists members and what breeds they are raising, to help members contact each other and add new birds and breeds to their flocks.
SPPA was established in 1967 by Neil Jones. Several of the original founding members continue to advise and guide SPPA, such as Loyl Stromberg and Duane Urch.
SPPA's nonprofit status makes your donation above membership tax deductible. Contact me through the site for information on including SPPA in your estate planning. Leave a legacy to the future.
A generous donor recently gave his library of antique books to SPPA, giving him a tax deduction. Another donor gave stock, which allowed him to deduct the appreciated value of the stock, regardless of his original investment.
The SPPA members are the gentlemen and women of poultry keeping. They are unceasingly generous with their time and always willing to share their knowledge. Everyone with an interest in chickens will benefit by joining SPPA.
