We get a behind the scenes look into the operations at Whiting Farms. There is a lot involved in order to get those even long hackles that fly tyers covet. There is the breeding selection process that is needed in order to breed in or out desired traits. There is the tracking of eggs from the time they are laid until the time they are harvested. There is the incubation, sexing, feeding, and on and on. One thing I can say is that these birds are well taken care of.
Follow along with Cheech and Curtis as Dr. Tom gives them the details of what it takes to grow and maintain the best hackle on the market.
