Returned from the show last night. Happy and exhausted. A van load of new pullets, chicks, and hatching eggs. Everyone I met was so nice! I purchased four mixed breed pullets from Jean. A pair of Grey Silkie youngsters from M. Best, and White Silkie hatching eggs out of a pen from S. Butler. (Thank you K. Hunter for assisting. I didn't get a chance to meet S. Butler. Maybe in Monroe? What a turn out. My DH and I were astounded by the sheer numbers of birds and people. The quality of exhibits blew me away. I took lots of pictures. Some good, some not so good. I really don't know who owned the birds I took pictures of. I took pictures of the ones that made me say, "WOW!" I started this thread to share. Here are some of my favorites. 8:30 am and the barn is still filling with people and birds. The table with poultry keeping items was back by the door. I purchased some bands and cage dishes from a nice man. One of the judges judging. I was not planning on purchasing any Silkies at the show but was wowed by two Grey youngsters in a sale pen. I stood in the middle of a crowd back there and timidly inquired who owned the birds. M. Best was standing right next to me and said, "Why, I do." Nicest lady! She sold me the little male and female and gave me a wealth of information. I was star struck.! Those darling little birds are settled in and are the friendlist little chicks I've ever seen. No exaggeration. They are a delight. I have read a little about Seramas and was amazed by the number of birds at the show. Before judging I kept going back to this little fellow and stare. It delighted me that the judge was also impressed! I have lots more pictures but would love other members that were at the show to share their's too.
