I am relatively new to Campines but have chosen them as one of the rare breeds that I want to maintain at my property in the Adelaide Hills. My goal is to source some genetic variation from a few breeders and try to maintain a more genetically diverse stock. I know that this will compromise my ability to breed very close to standard but I hope that I can build a good line and hopefully improve the egg productivity which has not been great so far. My hope is that a more productive bird might provide an incentive for a few more people to keep this beautiful breed in their back yards.
