    Hi everyone,

    I am a stay at home mother of two and have my own photography business. I started my chicken obsession over two months ago and BYC has been a wonderful source of education and entertainment. We have started out with 2 Silver Laced Brahmas, 2 Swedish Flower Hens, 2 Light Sussex, 2 Coronation Sussex, 2 Welsummer, 2 Black Copper Marans and 3 Delaware chicks. There are just so many interesting heritage breeds. I am looking forward having fresh eggs at some point! I am loving watching my babies grow! The kids are loving it too.

    [​IMG] neighbor!!

    May 7th there's a poultry show in Cocke County! Come join us and see a lot of gorgeous birds in one place at one time!
    Also, we're trying to get as many BYC peeps as we can to meet up at 10:30 in front of the rooster statue in front of the poultry barn so we can do a meet-n-greet and maybe get a few photos of the BYC-ers. Putting faces with names and such.

    Quote:Hang on and I'll post the directions....

    From Knoxville - 40 east to exit 432B (be careful this exit is on the left from the fast lane and easy to miss) , no turns from exit, follow down about 1.7 miles and the grounds are on your right. (Cheapest Gas is probably Knoxville)

    From J.C, Gray, Bristol, Blount, etc.. - 81 South to exit 1a and 40 East. Follow Knox instructions above. (your cheapest gas will either be the Pilot at 81 and exit 36 or 81 and exit 4, they are usually the same. Todays price was 3.65)

    From NC - 40 west over mountain to exit 432B ( your cheapest gas will be the Exon on the right after you have exited in Newport and gone under the overpass. Todays price was 3.73)

    From Whitepine / Greenville......You know how to get here, LOL Take 32s/25e until it dead ends in Newport at "Broadway / 25 / 70" and take a right. The fairgrounds is on the left 2/10 of a mile. (that Food City in Whitepine is probably cheaper on gas than Newport)



    Here's a link to the show thread....
