Welcome on our website.


Out of devoted love for waterfowl, the founder mr. P. Kooy sr., established our breeding farm on a 12 acre area bordering the sanddunes in the most northern part of the province of Noord-Holland. A most ideal spot, due to the freshwater supply of the dunes and the sea-climate.
Several first breedings were the result. Among these first breedings we achieved, were the Eyton''s Tree Duck, Hottentot Teals, Baer''s Pochard and the Radjah Shelduck. Jean Delacour and Sir Peter Scott mention this achievement in ''Waterfowl of the World''.
At present, the company is being managed by Peter Kooy and Frank van der Woude.

In our swan collection you will find among others the Trumpeter swan, which we have bred succesfully for many years and supply to zoological gardens, parks and private collectors at home and abroad.

Trumpeter swan (Cygnus buccinator)



Besides all species of swans we keep almost every species of geese on our farm. Many pairs of Red-Breasted Geese lord over the many other species on our beautifully planted ponds. The Orinoco goose, the Emperor goose, the Hawaiian goose and the Cape Barren goose are always available as well as many others. We have on our farm about 150 different species of waterfowl and the stock fluctuates between 1500 and 3000 birds.


Emperor geese (Anser canagicus)

In our duck collection we have the Harlequin duck, the Bufflehead and the White-Headed Stifftail.
For the aviculturist beginner we always have a choice of less expensive but no less beautiful species, which we obtain by exchange and purchase from other topbreeders and zoos.
During the first week of incubation we leave the eggs with the parents, after which the eggs are placed in an incubator.
Once dry the hatchlings are placed into a special nursery under artificial conditions on a gauze foundation, and are fed on a special diet.
Our method, due to its success, is being followed by countless others.
