    We went today and got some chickens that were really good deals, we think. We knew the show probably wouldn't run til noon but were surprised the breeders were packing up as early as 9:30 or 10:00. I thought it was very interesting...next time I want to go earlier in the day. We got two Gold-Laced Hamburg pullets, and two (uh-oh, I can't remember what they're called...they're cream colored and look sorta like Silkies but they're not..."fancy-feathered"...?) Anyway, they're pullets too, and really cute and very tame. If you want a variety of good breeding stock, that would be a very good place to look. What did anyone else get?

    I bought too much - 4 Silkies - 4 Quail and an OE Roo

    the best time as an FYI is right before leaving on Sunday for bargains - and Friday for first Choice -

    Ah! I live in CA and I'm so jealous because that's way too far! I can't wait for the big show here in January so I can get some nice birds!
