Howdy! Welcome to 'The Gypsy Hen! I am Jessica Loree, and The Gypsy Hen is my passion. I try to do my very best to bring quality poultry to the marketplace. My customers include the serious poultry breeder, to the backyard chicken enthusiast, and many 4-H'ers in between.
I took an interest in breeding poultry over a decade ago, when I realized there was something I was missing from my childhood. Yup, You guessed it. Chickens!! Growing up in the Pacific Northwest of Washington State, as a little girl, one of my regular chores was to clean the chicken coop. Although at the time I never thought the cleaning part was very fun, I found great joy in spending time with our birds. For the past 10 years, I have raised various different breeds of chickens, and narrowed down to a few select breeds and their varieties. I aim to breed to the standards set forth by the American Poultry Association.
Through my years, I have worked for several large-scale commercial poultry farms, worked in a veterinary clinic, owned a retail pet store, and raised cattle. I am also a certified Pullorum Typhoid (PT) tester for the state of Kansas. For the past 20+ years, I have made my career as an OTR Truck Driver, hauling Cattle and Feed-Ingredients all over the USA. Trucking takes it's toll on a person, so in early 2023, I added the Gypsy Hen lines to the breeds/varieties I had already been raising. Although I do still haul cattle, the next chapter of my life will be dedicated to maintaining and always improving the quality of the birds I raise and offer.
I am more of a behind the scenes type of person, but every egg is personal to me. Whether it's in my incubator or yours, that little chick that hatches will always be dear to my heart, and so are my customers. I love helping new people start and grow in the poultry world, as well as cheering for those who exhibit my lines in the show circuits and 4-H.
Thanks for stopping by my website and let me know if I can be of any help to you here at the Gypsy Hen!
