Jim Adkins has a passion for poultry and people; he loves to teach and equip people to see the value of standard bred poultry. Seeing a need no one was filling, he created the International Center for Poultry in 1992, and has been spreading the word ever since!
Jim started his poultry interest as a young man who grew up in 4-H, raising and exhibiting poultry in southwest Washington State.
For the past thirty years, Jim has raised over fifty breeds and varieties of standard bred poultry (that includes chickens, ducks, geese and turkeys). In 1994, he received his poultry judging license from the American Poultry Association which has taken him to thirty plus states, Canada, and Australia to judge standard bred poultry. Recently, he has worked for a large commercial turkey company; supervising five ranches that produced over a half million turkeys a year.
