    I look forward to coming to the show in Hope, Indiana. I used to live near there in a community called old ST. Louis crossing. Haven't been there in about 20 years. Norman

    I knew a lady that lived in Old St. Louis crossing, Eve Bundy. She raised Araucanas/Easter Eggers. That was about 20 years ago

    I"ve just started and not been to one of thes shows yet. What happens here? Is this where chickens are shown for prizes or is there swapping/selling going on? I'm going to try to get there but wondered what all to expect.

    Both. You have to pre-register any birds you plan to show, and probably should call to reserve a sales space.
