    good point - but hopefully it will turn out to be a perfect day as the last two have been - sunny, yet not too hot.
    Will you be able to attend?[​IMG]

    it's close, I may have to drag my weekend guest with me. All I have left are cockerals (blue laced red and one gold laced wyandotte) and one mature blrw rooster(maybe).
    the frizzles won't be old enough to go and I'm not sure if I will know what I'm keeping vs selling at that point. I will however take a list if anyone is interested. they are bantam cochin frizzles- straight feathers or frizzled males. colors still unknown maybe some barred.

    Quote:I will advertise this at our event, also I'll give note of what you want, what Hoppy has and see what we can do for the two of you.
    Can I use your email address' for the contact sheets?

    I'd like to offer some of these with the NH folks, well Chickn, she is a sweetheart and it is a positive thing to include. When we speak about laws and legal issues, its for recognition, working within those boundries, yet there are loop holes to work through when it comes to shows and such. State the laws and then its your responsibility to follow or ignore such guidelines.

    BTW- some of that information that is from Bill is extremely interesting. Not only that, quite a bit was written by Mark Opitz, he was the head of the state diagnostic lab a few years back. Super nice guy- obviously intellegent, but the papers he wrote are in laymans terms for everyone to understand.
