    Weather permitting, I'll be there. My son has three Large Dark Brahmas, and two Bantam Dark Cornish in the Junior show. I've entered seven Bantam Buff Brahmas-a minimal display. Looking forward to it, first time to enter the Stock Show.

    I'm trying to go to the poultry show for the first time, just too look at all the awesome birds. How long does it typically last on Sundays? I can't go to the Sat. show so I'm trying to see if I can pop over there right after church gets out (usually at 11.) How long does it typically last on Sundays?

    The catalog says coop-out is 3pm Sunday. Not sure how closely they will adhere to that. You should have plenty of time.
