    I'm going to be heading up to Grant Ulriches next weekend for a Call duck. Mom and dad are working so I have to see if one of my grandmas is free or if my aunt Amy will go.

    Did anyone get up to the Illini Poultry Show? If so, did you show? How'd you do? Were there lots of birds? Inquiring minds want to know!!!

    Yea I went, great show, sadly if the club doesnt recruit some more members this will be the last year. I got there late to pick up my birds and there were only 4 people working on tearing down the cages. I will get some pics up later.

    Great news on the wins!! Sad to hear that lack of interest may cause yet another show to fade away..........

    That buff silkie was really nice, had really good even color without any black.

    If anyone wants some Guinea Keets let me know! I need to sell a couple! I have 17 Keets and I sure in heck don't want that many! LOL

    They are $6.00 each but will give a discount if you buy more than 5. [​IMG]
    Oh and I will trade a couple of the keets for a Dog House.
