    Maybe next year. I'm expecting heritage white faced black Spanish eggs this fall from Jim Bell. I hope to have something from it to show by next spring/summer.

    Does anyone know if they have a sales barn? I have many many buff-laced and gold-laced brahma chicks for sale?

    Quote:I haven't heard anything about a sales barn but you are allowed to sell things that you are exhibiting. The Expo takes a 20% commission for all sales. You could ask them about the Sales Barn idea. Maybe they haven't thought of it.

    The Heirloom Expo is being held 9/13-15 TUESDAY - THURSDAY as you guys know... There is a slight chance that I might show some of my breeds, of course then I'd have to be there to coop-in which actually is probably the night before.

    Does anyone have certain days that they would like to schedule a meet-up for? I'm hoping that there will be some yummy culinary treats for us to get and maybe have a picnic or sorts? Any ideas? I'm happy to help organize it with someone!

    I think I will be there Thursday - I have to schedule this trip around school. A meet-up would be fun!
