    I keep seeing Michigan Chickenstocks being planned...but they all become inactive or canceled! What about a Chickenstock in Lansing? We could meet at Lake Lansing Park in late August. Someone close to that area could reserve a Gazebo, and everyone can bring a dish to pass, bring things to sell, show, and trade...but I'm not sure live animals are allowed, I will try to get ahold of somebody to find out.

    I don't have ANY experience with chickenstocks, so help or suggestions would be gladly appreciated...[​IMG]

    hi,
    I live outside of Lansing, about 15 minutes away from lake lansing, and I do not believe that animals are allowed (the next time I go to the park I can check - since I go a couple times a week, depending on the weather) but I would love to get something planned and be apart of since I am new to this chicken mom thing and my kids are loving all the new experiences they are having.

    Cool, thanks! [​IMG] I was thinking about having it on August 18...But if this date isn't convinient (like if someone is busy on that day, or if the park has no places open) I could always schedual it for the end of July. Like I said, I am new to Chickenstocks...so I will take ANY suggestions / help I can get![​IMG]

    Yeah, I just realized that is on a Monday! Alot of people have to work and it will be VERY crowded (especialy since it's free)! [​IMG] How about Saturday the 9th?

    And about how much is the fee to get in?

    it is actaully not too crowded on the weekdays, but weekends are really bad (drove by it today - while it was raining and it was still packed) but the fee I believe is $10 for non resident (but don't quote me until I go back) - any day is fine with me - no big deal
    thanks
