Hurray! We'll be having a BYC booth at the expo.  A family in our area has volunteered to bring their chickens
AND they'll be advertising the current contest for the coop giveaway HUGE BYC Contest Tudy at The Feed Store - Win A FREE Chicken Coop ! 
AND they'll be collecting signatures for a petition to have the city ordinance changed to allow keeping of hens in Jacksonville, FL.

Anyone who can, should come by and sign that petition!  The event is free to the public.

There will be only one exhibit for the chickens so far and there'll be no selling that day since we are trying to be true to the nature of a Seed Swap.  However, if you'd like to come and hand out information or leave information at the Chicken exhibit for people to take home - please DO!

I am so bummed that I missed the seed swap. I am new to BYC and am very interested in the petition to change the Jacksonville ordinance to keep chickens. Is there anyone out there I can contact? Can I still sign the petition?

Thanks!
