    Does anyone have any upcoming events planned in Florida ?

    Any chicken shows ?

    Any swap & sales ?

    Anything ?

    We would love to participate (to try and sell some of our chickens) or to show some of them.

    Thanks,
    Lisa

    Thank you so much ! That turned out to be a great link. I wrote a lot of the upcoming events down in case my husband and son want to go to try and sell more of his chickens. They always have such a fun time meeting other chicken people and seeing other peoples' chickens !

    Thanks for being nice and passing along the info to me.

    Are you planning on going to any of those events ?

    p.s. Love your avatar pic....I've seen it before. That's one monster rooster ! Kind of reminds me of our biggest one - a copper blue splash maran rooster - he was so huge when I laid first eyes on him

    I'm not sure of the Arcadia sale in October as there is one in my own county on that same day I may have to go to instead. Bent Creek I probably won't go to until the weather cools off in the fall.

    Aw, that's too bad ! That's the only one (the one in Arcadia) I can actually go along with since it's the closest event to us. My husband and son will try and make it to others. What kind of chickens do you raise so they can look out for you ?

    I always have to stay behind to look after the farm (since I'm the goat and fish caretakers). Someone has to look after all the animals !

    Thanks !!
