  • History


    H&N has now been one of the world’s leading breeders of egg type chickens for over 60 years. 1936: The commencement of our company goes back to the year 1936, when the founder of H&N, Mr. Arthur Heisdorf started his career as a geneticist for Kimber Poultry Breeding. 1945: Mr. Heisdorf left Kimber Farms to start his own poultry breeding company near Seattle, WA – U.S.A. He started selling Kimber strain Leghorns. At the same time he began importing samples of stock from leading breeders from America as well as from Europe and Japan.
