Welcome to the Poultry Conservancy:

The Copenhagen Conservancy for Heritage Chickens

We are a husband and wife team and we love chickens! Our goal is to protect and preserve endangered poultry breeds. We want to support and encourage people at the local level, and across the world, to help these wonderful birds thrive.

We put together the first draft of this website to formulate our goals and to raise awareness of our intentions to conserve rare poultry breeds. We want to do a lot more with this site over time, but we also didn't want to take too long putting something together either. This way we could have something to show to others when needed.

For the last 4 years we have been raising chickens at Hermit House in Hedehusene, Denmark. We have known for the last 2 years that we wanted to transition our current publication business, Hermit Studio, into some sort of chicken business. It wasn't until 2017 that we realised we wanted to go down the conservancy route. Once that happened everything started to piece together and make sense at last. Although this is a long term plan, to be acted upon a little bit each year, it helps to have the overall goals and vision defined so we (and therefore you) know what we are working towards.
