Managed to spend a cold day at Lebanon without bringing home more than I took. Unfortunately, though, I only brought home one less than I took; that one was the peachick that EllieMaeRans had reserved ahead of time. Like most others, I had no luck finding anyone at the meetup table, but did see EMR and LAMom. None of my birds were really show ready this time except my BCM cock and hen, but I took some anyhow so they would have the experience of being around so many birds, being handled by the judge, etc. At least none of them were DQed! I had marked my white frizzle cochin as out because he had managed to drag himself through poop in the cage overnight and I didn't want to deal with trying to clean him up. He got judged and got a 1 anyhow--judge must not have handled him or he would have seen the mess! Blue Grass show at Frankfort KY next weekend, Ohio National and Indiana Poultry Breeders in November, and that's it for the year unless I want to really travel, which isn't sounding too appealing.
