    I'm definitely going, and maybe looking for some birds to bring home, as well as some hatching eggs... who's bringing what to sell?

    Also, I think you have to be an exhibitor to have a sale table/booth at this show - does anyone know if that's true? I didn't get my flock tested in time, but I'd like to bring my jewelry to sell and I haven't been able to get a response from the contact person (Stephen Blash - anyone know him?).

    YAY!

    Eggs I'm looking for (SQ parents preferred):
    d'Uccles in anything other than MF or porcelain
    Golden Phoenix
    bantam cochins (birchen, brown red, or barred)
    Hamburgs
    golden Campine or golden Buttercup


    Hens I wouldn't mind finding for sale:
    SQ d'Uccles in anything other than MF (porcelain would be great, really good foot feathers preferred)
    LF modern game (Tom, are you on here? Have any more you want to sell me? [​IMG])
    gold-laced Sebright
    bantam French marans (any color)
    SQ cochins
    Maybe a call duck hen, or another black east indies hen
    Maybe another polish hen

    Maybe Laura or Sarah have Hamburgs? Are there bantam Marans in the US?

    I'm still trying to decide if I should enter the fav cockerel I got from Ron Patterson. Nothing like waiting until the last minute!

    Too bad I don't have Leisha's blues yet.

    How big is this show anyway? How many sellers are there (not that I should bring anything home [​IMG])?

    It was a lot of fun last time I went... the show part is held inside their barn (usually an indoor riding arena, I believe), along with raffle items and sponsor/vendor booths, and birds for sale are in the adjoining parking area. They had a concession stand, etc... It's a nice place at it was really fun to hang around there for a day!
