In 1969, Loyl founded Stromberg's Chicks & Pets in Fort Dodge, selling baby chicks, pheasants, ducklings, goslings and other exotic birds, as well as small animals and poultry and game bird equipment.
In his Pine River collection, Loyl also has a very special "Old Trusty" incubator, made in Clay Center, Neb., and offered as a 4-H prize in the early 1920s at the Nebraska State Fair.
That's where Loyl found it: "I paid $175, and I'm surprised he even sold it to me.
Tim Nimz, director of the Ag Hall of Fame (www.aghalloffame.com), calls Loyl "collector in chief" of the poultry fanciers developing the national museum there.
Tim says that most of those working with Loyl to develop the poultry museum also are from the upper Midwest and that the Ag Hall board of directors has given them "a wide window of opportunity" to pursue their goals.
Loyl says in the early days, such stoneware was "very, very common" but today it is "very, very rare."
To date, Loyl's group has completed and paid for the 24-by-42-foot building called the Hatchery in which their collection is displayed.
One of Loyl's major projects during the past 25 years has been researching and writing Encyclopedia--Poultry of the World.
That will be an achievement that will be hard to top in the world of poultry, but Loyl Stromberg has set his sights even higher.
There is no shortage of items available for exhibit in this specialty museum, Loyl notes.
"With use it became very unsanitary, and also the feathers would wear out," Loyl said.
A poultry museum in Holland, which Loyl visited in 1989 and is studying for ideas, was financed 100 percent by the commercial poultry industry.
