    Good morning everyone.... thought I'd drop in really quick to let everyone know what's been going on this past week..

    First off... We have had a great week of showing at the McLean Co IL Fair in Bloomington IL. On Wed, Aug 4, Austin (my 10 yr old son) won Champion and Reserve Champion Mini Lop/Holland Lop and went on to win Grand Champion Over all [​IMG] then on Thurs Aug 5, Austin got Champion Commercial Pen of Old Hens... We are SO happy and wanted to share the news!! [​IMG]

    On a side note... We are getting Partridge Wyandotte Bantams for our 8 yr old daughter to show next year in the fair!! She is SO excited.. and I cant wait to have some Bantams running around [​IMG]

    Well... off to the fair again today.. Last day... It's been a long but exciting week... [​IMG]

    Have a great Sunday

    Hey, that's exciting, congratulations to your family!

    I have to ask, why do they have a contest for a Commercial Pen of Old Hens? (I've never been through the animal showing section of a fair, so I don't know any of this stuff.)

    In order to exhibit in the egg classes yu have to show a pen of old hens. Since our RIRs are commercial/production quality we put them in commercial pen of old hens. We showed our eggs as commercial egg
