Welcome to Wild Acres!

Thank you for your ongoing support. We are sold out of all hatching eggs, chicks, ducklings and goslings for 2024 and we will not be adding onto anyone’s orders. We will be taking pre-orders for 2025 via our online store on Nov. 1st. Online Store | Wild Acres

Since 2012 our small family-owned breeder farm has been selling and showing heritage chicks, ducklings, goslings, hatching eggs, and registered Nubian dairy goats. We also own a pair of rare Hungarian Komondor dogs (LGDs) and occasionally we will have a litter of puppies available. Our colourful eating eggs from our free-range chickens are sold year-round at our farm gate. Wild Acres is located in Armstrong, British Columbia, Canada.

Hatching eggs can be picked up at our farm or shipped via Xpresspost to BC, YT, AB, SK, and MB in April, May, and June. Day-old poultry and waterfowl can be picked up at our farm in May and June and this is usually arranged for Sunday afternoons. We do not ship chicks or ducklings. 

We do not ship hatching eggs to Ontario, Quebec, or the eastern provinces due to shipping delays, cost factors, and other circumstances.

We breed, show, and sell high-quality CLRC-registered Nubian dairy goats. Our colourful Nubians have a proven track record in shows and come from champion milk lines with extensive health testing. We breed for correct conformation, dairy character, and strong mammary systems in our Nubian goat breeding program.

Wild Acres Nubian goat herd has tested negative for CL, CAE, and Johne’s since September 2, 2016, and G6-S since July 2019. Our Nubian bucks and does are only used for our breeding program. Our Nubian goats are registered, tattooed, disbudded, vaccinated, and dewormed regularly.   

We sell a limited number of goats each year via pre-order. Please see these web pages for more information: Goats for Sale | Wild Acres, Goat Policies & Orders | Wild Acres

Here is the webpage from the CLRC /Canadian Goat Society for registration information, tattoos, tests, and contacts for goat owners:

We prefer to operate on a smaller scale. and we have no intention of becoming a commercial hatchery or owning a large herd of registered Nubian goats. Spending quality time with each animal on our farm is essential.

Our Komondor livestock guardian dogs protect all our animals with 0 losses to predators. Dignified, loyal, and brave the Komondor is called the “King of the Working Dogs”. They are a renowned LGD from 16th century Hungary. Occasionally we have puppies available. Please see this webpage for more information Komondor Livestock Guardian Dogs | Wild Acres

We have enjoyed showing our registered Nubian goats and heritage poultry/waterfowl at the Interior Provincial Exhibition, West National Goat Show, Salmon Arm Fair, APA Canadian National Poultry Show, Fall FeatherFest, and the Feather Fancier Show.  At Wild Acres, we always strive for quality rather than quantity!

We strive to improve our heritage breed stock with each generation. Excellent nutrition and care play a key role in our animals’ well-being and the quality of our shipped-hatching eggs. We believe in responsible breeding practices and value traditional methods that naturally promote the health of our flock.

We refrain from vaccinating our birds or using antibiotics in their upbringing. Instead, we focus on strengthening their immune systems and gene pools through careful selection over multiple generations. Our approach emphasizes providing high-quality food, allowing free-ranging, and culling as necessary. This holistic method, coupled with keen observation and daily care, enables us to hatch, raise, and breed birds capable of thriving in a free-range mixed poultry environment without antibiotics or vaccines.

To improve our flocks from one generation to the next we:

-strive for natural immunity and free range our flock for most of the year in our growing orchard/permaculture environment
-only bring in unrelated show lines and quality stock if needed for gene pool strengthening and we prefer to use hatching eggs for biosecurity reasons
-quarantine poultry both before and after shows
-regularly consult with our veterinarian

-select our best stock for poultry shows and breeding purposes over several generations
-carefully choose the largest and richest coloured eggs with the strongest shells for hatching and shipping purposes
-consistently work towards the American Poultry Association Standards and cull birds that show signs of sickness, weaknesses, or aggressive temperaments
practice biosecurity and do not allow farm visits or tours Biosecurity | Wild Acres
-all pickup sales transactions are done at our front gate and by appointment
-do not allow any birds to return to our property once purchased
achieve these goals without vaccines 

 We aim to breed robust and aesthetically pleasing birds that excel in egg production and coexist harmoniously in a natural environment. To support this goal, we are developing a permaculture food forest for our livestock, enriching their lives with year-round access to diverse foods such as fruits, berries, vegetables, herbs, grasses, and insects. This sustainable approach enhances their health through natural foraging and protects them from the elements and predators, ensuring their overall well-being and vitality.

“Permaculture is a holistic, living-in-harmony-with-nature worldview, as well as a technical approach for how to do so. “https://modernfarmer.com/2016/04/permaculture/

We firmly believe in giving our poultry and waterfowl the time to recuperate after the spring and summer breeding season. Therefore, our poultry and waterfowl free range for most of the year in mixed flock groupings in our fields.

Adding artificial lighting to poultry breeding pens can alter individual behaviour, with often drastic and potentially negative effects on biological rhythms, daily activity and reproduction. Light pollution disrupts sleep in free-living animals (nih.gov)

 We understand the potential stress that artificial lighting can impose on breeding birds when used year-round to enhance egg production or fertility. Through our experience on the farm, we observed the negative impact on our flocks’ health and longevity caused by prolonged exposure to artificial lights. As a result, we prioritize the well-being of our poultry and waterfowl above sales or reproduction goals. We have chosen not to subject our breeding flocks to artificial lighting or extend their natural breeding season beyond the spring and summer. Consequently, hatching eggs, chicks, and their sales are limited to only a few months in the spring each year to ensure optimal health and vitality of our flocks.
