The Lund family began raising poultry in the year 2000, when Terry bought his daughter, Kaylyn, an incubator for her 5th birthday. With a flock of 90 commercial laying hens, Kaylyn started "Kaylyn's Working Girls" at 6 years old. Eggs were collected, washed and delivered daily to neighbors and friends. When Kaylyn and her brother Parker started 4-H, they used the money saved from egg sales to invest in their first purebred chickens: White Silkies. Over the next few years, the purebred breeds began to outnumber the commercial laying hens. In 2005 the Lunds exhibited at their first Open Poultry Show under the name "Lund Poultry". Throughout high school and college, both Kaylyn and Parker stayed involved in exhibition poultry. At peak production, Lund Poultry raised over 10 breeds of chickens, 5 breeds of geese and 3 breeders of ducks. Over 1,200 chicks we're hatched a year and hundreds of dozens of hatching eggs were sold. Kaylyn and Parker used profits from sales to update facilities, pay for feed, exhibit at shows and to help offset their college tuition costs. Fast forward to 2020, and Lund Poultry is still in operation. Although both Parker and Kaylyn have outgrown 4-H, moved off the farm, and have full time jobs, the birds still remain. Today, Lund Poultry raises 3 breeds of chickens, 5 breeds/varieties of ducks and 2 breeds of geese. The day-to-day chores, cleaning, hatching etc. are ran by Terry, Kaylyn and her fiancé, Mitchell. The poultry operation is always a priority, no matter what time of year. Winter is spent setting up the next year's breeding pens. Spring is busy with weekly hatches of chickens and waterfowl. Summer days are occupied by meticulous chores preparing birds for shows. And during the most hectic of seasons, Fall, you’ll find Terry, Kaylyn, and Mitchell at a poultry show almost every weekend from September thru November. Being able to exhibit birds at shows is a true family operation for the Lunds! While Terry, Mitchell and Kaylyn travel to the shows and prep the birds for judging, the rest of the family works behind the scenes to make it all possible. Parker is in charge of poultry chores on the farm, for example, while Penny, Linda, and Terry Sr. care for the dogs, cows and other pets. What was once a foreign experience, exhibiting at poultry shows today feels like second nature to Terry and Kaylyn. Even after traveling over 15+ hours, show halls are filled with familiar faces and close friends. Shortly after Kaylyn met Mitchell, he began to attend open shows with her, and even purchased some of his own birds. The trio works like clockwork now, because each one has designated responsibilities upon arrival at a show. After 20 years, Lund Poultry has achieved many accomplishments. A few notable ones for the family include: the sale of birds to all 50 US states & Puerto Rico, earning Grand Master Exhibitor status in the American Poultry Association, and winning Super Grand Champion of Show in 2018 at the American Poultry Association National Meet in Shawnee, OK. The Lund Family plans on continuing Lund Poultry for many years to come, and hopes to one day pass the love for poultry onto the next generation.
