I just got back from the Illini Poultry Show. I was disappointed to find they didn't have a supplies vendor there this year. I asked about it and they said the one they had contracted with before had a scheduling conflict this year so they didn't have one.
It was still fun to walk around and see the different breeds. The fellow I got my SLWs from won Best of Breed and Reserve Champion American with one of his pullets! There were so many more bantams than large fowl.... No New Hampshires for me to compare mine to. Oh well, I guess that means I'll have to find another show to go to this fall.....probably the Lebanon, Indiana one....10/20,...anyone else going there?
