About SIGN

SIGN Network was established in 2009, as one of the most significant and influential networks of indigenous grant-makers in the WB with aim to contribute to the development of sustainable local communities and civil society. Main purpose of the SIGN Network is to promote and support the development of local philanthropy, local communities, cross-sector partnerships and long-term sustainability of civil society in countries in Southeast Europe on national, regional and EU levels.

The network combines strong understanding of local conditions through partnership with grass-roots organizations, think tanks and other local associations; cutting edge experience in developmental grantmaking; renowned expertise in the field of philanthropy, local community development, cross-sector partnerships and sustainable civil society; as well as strategic advocacy partnerships at national and international levels.

SIGN operates as a non-formal network that is governed by the steering group which is comprised of representatives from each member-organization. The steering group is responsible for strategic decisions, admittance of new members and cessation of membership, establishment of ad-hoc structures, fundraising activities and statutory changes. One organization (currently HORUS from North Macedonia) – member of the Network serves as a chairing organization.

 

Members of SIGN Network are:

Whiting Farms Coq de Leon Hen Saddle

: Whiting Farms Coq de Leon Hen Saddle - Speckled Brown : Sports & Outdoors. : Whiting Farms Coq de Leon Hen Saddle - Speckled Brown : Sports & Outdoors. From black to intensely mottled 。 Broader than most hen saddle feathers 。 Excellent for larger wet flies 。 Whiting Farms is the only breeder of Coq de Leon with original bird stock from the Leon district of Spain. 。 The Coq de Leon is the oldest known chicken strain specifically bred for fly tying feathers. References to these rooster feathers, and the special flies tied with them, are found in manuscripts going back to as early as 24. Therefore, the strain could even have been in existence for hundreds of years prior to 24. Historically the Coq Leon strain of chicken was cultivated almost exclusively in the Northwest region of Spain, called Leon, thus its name; Rooster of Leon. In the early 990's Dr. Thomas , founder and owner of Farms, Inc., became intirgued with these near mythical Coq de Leon fowl. And so during the mid 990's he succeeded in importing Coq de Leon stock from different sources. For the first several generations Dr. personally kept and cared for these proud birds at his own residence, studying them and their unique feathers. Applying what had been learned from the genetic breeding of the other fly tying feather strains at Farms, Dr. embarked on cultivating and developing his own poulation of Coq de Leon. A new genetic tactic of selection for the highest quality first nuptial plumage was initiated. This differed fundamentally from the traditional Spanish methodology that relied on periodic, repeated plucking of the desired feathers from only a few elite roosters. The approach resulted in a much higer rate of genetic progress, due to the large number of breeder candidates, and a more rapid turnover of generations, referred to as genetic selection pressur and generational rate, respectively. In addition the females of the Coq de Leon strain were also rigorously selected, for specific feather characteristics, pedigree information, and particularly for a very complex and attractive mottled feather pattern that makes them uniquely valuable as a source of fly tying feather. By the year 2000 the Farms Coq de Leon feather products were ready for market. 。 。 。
