    It Time again to start making plans to attend the Florida Sunshine Classic in Lake City , Florida. Our show dates are Jan 11th and 12th. We are hoping to build our Youth Show . We are now sanctioned with the ABA / APA Youth Program and will be holding a sanctioned Showmanship show as the youth club members can earn points toward awards. We have acquired numerous poultry related Items to be given as awards and also some that will be auctioned off with proceeds going towards future shows. Also we will be having a Breeders Auction that will be open to The Youth Only we have several Breeder Trios and Pairs donated. We are still accepting donations of breeder birds and poultry related items for the auction. We are proud to that Cackle Hatchery has come on board and will be sponsoring our Youth Show and Central States Enterprises will be sponsoring our Open Show. Contact info for the show Danny or Norma Padgett ( Show Secretary ) [email protected] or (386) 496-2561 or Randal Hodges, [email protected] (904) 562-9087. We will be setting up on Saturday January the 4th any help would be greatly appreciated

    I'm 15 and this will be my first time showing and I'm sooooooo excited! I'm plan on taking a white Judy lee Cochin hen, a coronation Sussex pullet and a pair of white lee morey call ducks. Any tips and help would be GREATLY appreciated! Sadly this hobby doesn't run in the family so I'm a loner on this experience and could use everything advice wise. Prep would be especially helpful. I've been raising birds and showbirds since I can remember but I definitely need help on the showing side ( since this will be my first time and I'm a little intimidated ).

    What's everyone bringing to sell? I'm interested in polish and silkies. I could bring some Rhodebar chicks, pekin ducklings, rir/welsummer chicks (sale $1.50), black tailed Japanese Bantam, and more I have a list on classifieds in chicks. I won't be bringing unless pre sold and would need to meet Saturday morning.
