Maryland Poultry Swap and Farmers Market JUNE 16th 2012 SHARPSBURG, MD 8-2pm **SHOW CLINIC** - Page 9

I know I won't be able to retest before the swap timewise. Does it make any difference if you are part of 90 AI monitoring program? If not I will happily attend as a spectator and I can provide some hatching eggs for prizes.

Lwarfield, you are good to go if you're in the monitoring program. Md regulations state that instate poultry must be tested for AI within 90 days and not the 10 days for out of staters. Bring your paperwork and whatever you'd like to sell. Seeya before 7:30 on Sat morning.

The kids and I had a lot of fun! We found the show clinic especially informative. I would love to help organize that part next year.

Wow, what a great event. This is the 1st, but not last, time I've attended! I had a wonderful time just walking around and seeing all the birds on display and for sale. There were some beautiful birds there! I was fortunate enough to come home with this beautiful SQ pair of bantam wyandotte from Mr. Herb Rogers! Very excited to have them.

What a great event!

We couldn't have had better weather--a great day to be outside, seeing all those wonderful birds, & other things for sale, plus I enjoyed meeting lots of people.   

Thanks--look forward to the next swap.

Oh what a wonderful day!  The weather was perfect.  We had a great turnout.  This was the biggest swap I've ever been to.. except for maybe the Uniontown swap three years ago.. still wanna go back to one of those.  And, everyone just stayed and hung out.. there was so much to look at.  I am not exaggerating!! at all when I say we did over 1,200 people yesterday.  Now, that's a swap clap.gif

And, here's some pics I took.  If anyone else has pictures, please post them here.
