Come to the CT Peeps Get-Together (non-CT Peeps welcome!)

October 1, 2011 11am - 4pm


Bring a dish to share for our pot-luck lunch and something for the grill for your own family. Games and Fun for the KIDDIES!



THE FIRST ANNUAL CHICKEN DERBY!
See the amazing racing chickens! (field is closed - no outside runners)
Can newcomer-to-the-field Pippa beat out proven-winner EJ?


While this is NOT an official "swap" or "chickenstock".. we will have the garage cleared out for anyone wanting to bring birds to sell/give away and/or other chicken-related items. See notes below.


1. PLEASE let me know if you are bringing a rooster. Roosters are not really allowed in our town and special arrangements may need to be made if we have too many roos bugging my neighbors.
2. All birds must be tested. Bring proof (and copies of proof to give to buyers).
3. All birds must be caged. If possible, bring a card table to put your cage on.
4. Let me know if you need electricity for a heat lamp for babies.
5. Feel free to sell other items chicken/homestead related. Bring your own card table to put these items on.


ITEMS WE NEED: please let me know if you can provide any of the following

extra card tables for eating on
lawn chairs
non-paper feed sacks (like Purina brand - to be used for sack races)
items for a raffle
small gazebo-style tents in case it rains



Address: 59 Cottage St, Derby CT. PM for directions.. your GPS will lead you astray.


RSVP below!

Sounds interesting! Definitely subscribing to this topic. Gotta check with the other half, see if he's working that weekend, if we want to drive "all that way" (I always wonder how people from bigger states do that kinda thing) etc....

Jimmythechicken.. that would be great if you can bring burgers! For the raffle.. I'm open to whatever ideas people may have (fertile eggs, a knitted chicken hat, a bag of feed/treats, 10 acres of land..)

Nic&Chickies.. hope you can make it!

You all know I will be there


I can bring Fresh Picked Corn on the Cob as long as it's still producing from the farm then. I have a big pot, burner, and S & P + Butter


Also, I will bring some hatching eggs to the raffle. Hopefully the Silkie, Cochins, and Araucana's will be laying well then


I may be late but, will be there!!
