    I'm going. I'm bringing Bantam Mottled Houdans, Bantam Black Creviecouers, Bantam Crele Old English, Bantam Dorkings, Silkies and Showgirl Silkies in many colors, Standard Cochins in many colors. I was going to go to Troy Swap But they charge you $25.00 for 1 day and Eaton only charges $15 for one day and plus you dont have to unhook your trailer from your truck and park it some where else.

    Hey, George I changed the cost. But I was saying That I only go to swaps for one day and $25.00 for one day is getting up there. You should have pricing for people that want to set up for one day not 2

    Thanks for correcting it.

    We do have cheaper one day pricing if you want to come out for Sunday only...
    Saturday is the busiest day though so the weekend price applies.

    We have spent a lot of money trying to get this built back up and hopefully will at least break even sometime in the future. We certainly can't do it for free when the fairgrounds rental is so high PLUS we spend around $8,000 per swap on advertising. There aren't many people that will spend that kind of money to help make sure you sell your birds. Feel free to call me if you change your mind and want to come out on Saturday. We can work with you if you need to leave your trailer hooked.

    I am going to try to make it. I only have a few cockerels to sell and maybe a few chicks. I hope to bring the following:

    (1) Bantam Colubian Rock cockeral
    (1) LF Blue Laced Red Wyandotte cockeral (Foley line) actually Blue Laced
    (7) Bantam Silver Laced Wyandotte chicks straight run
    (1) Bantam Partridge Wyandotte chick straight run
    (1-2) LF Silver Laced Brahmas cockerel (not sure yet if I am ready to part with them, as they are still maturing).
    and a friend may have some Partridge Wyandotte Bantam cockerels

    Sure wish I had some extra pullets/hens to put with these handsome fellas, but that has been my luck this year. LOTS of ROOSTERS!

    Hope to see you all there, looks like we are going to have perfect poultry swap weather!
