    The first swap of the year was great. Made out like a bandit. Next swap is Sunday, May 6th. Hope you can make it!

    Howdy!

    I was hoping to see that there was one being held this weekend. Probably a good thing that there isn't because I'd surely come home with something and I'm a long way away from being ready. Well, I'm ready but I don't have a coop ready yet.

    Looking forward to the September one, though! Putting it on my calendar right now.

    Mothergoose will have some of my chickens there as well....

    Check em out.....

    One pair of White Amercuana Bantams...these are from Mike Gilbert lines.

    One pair of Silver Spangled Hamburg Bantams....these were from show quality lines (Jim LeGendre, OR-one of the BEST breeders of SSHB in USA...wonderful guy if you ask me!)

    3 Polish Bantams, white creasted black, from my zoo whose parents were from McMurray hatchery. I have pics of parents.
