Since this is NH and it is the Granite State...we are having a

"Rockin-Stock" !!

This will be so much fun!!

Ok folks here is the official thread
Let's begin our planning for our 3rd annual stock/chicken peep get together!!

This event is open to the public!! Please feel free to bring friends!

9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Updated to add ADDRESS!!
6 Red Water Brook Rd
Claremont, NH 03743

Chickenstock to be held on our farm here in Claremont, NH - JULY 7, 2012!!! This is a one day event and will be held on a Saturday instead of a Sunday. Plenty of time for those of you who will need time to travel. Sure hope you can attend!

If you have ever been to a chicken swap or if you haven't here is how this works.

If you would like to sell anything, you bring a table and an easy up awning and you set up whatever you have to offer. Things I have seen at past chickenstock: Chickens, chicks, eggs (hatching and eating), bunnies, flowers, plants, seads, nest boxes, feeders, waterers, cages, canned goods, homemade items (crafts, crochet, knitting) maple syrup, lawn ornaments.

Remember if you bring anything alive (including children :) ) they are your responsibilty. Depending on the weather they will need shade, they will need food and water - please plan accordingly.

If you are coming to buy - bring boxes if you will be taking home birds or chicks or anything else you may need a box for.

We will have a potluck lunch. Please feel free to bring a dish. Let me know ahead of time what it will be and I will add a list here for everyone to work from.

There are a few Hotels in the area and we are in Dartmouth Lake Sunapee region in beautiful NH, for those of you who are coming from a distance and want to make an overnight of it.

Please keep in mind this will be an outdoor event. This event will be held rain or shine - dress and pack appropriately. We will have an awesome time no matter the weather.

I will need as much help as possible and will be seeking sponsors for the raffle as is the usual custom. Any donations to the auction would be greatly appreciated.

Bring your birds, your chair and your dish to share and have a day with like minded people!!!
ATTENTION: I do not mean this to sound offensive, snarky or rude. I am asking this out of respect for everyone attending and the health and safety of their flocks. PLEASE DO NOT BRING ANY BIRDS WHO APPEAR TO BE SICK. I have the right to deny you entrance to my farm on threat of bio-security to the other animals present on the farm. If you bring ill, poorly attended birds I may ask you to leave regardless of how far you have driven. - Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

People planning to attend and sell birds from out of State, must be NPIP - please PM me.

The following pages will contain much information in our planning. Please check back here as I will update this original post as needed.

Now let's have some fun planning!!!

Debating 6 millie fleur duccle chicks that are 6 weeks old....my broody just hatched out 5 more of them and combining them eventually might be tough....sex unknown but if I had to guess...they appear to be all girls!!! MAYBE on boy?
