    ok, for those attending, who is bringing what? please post so we can get an idea.
    I'll start:
    I am bringing
    1 blue laced red wyandotte standard cockeral 11 weeks old
    1 black cochin bantam cockeral with 2 black pullets also 11 weeks old
    sell as a trio or 1 pair and single pullet.

    I will hold them if I know you want them.
    also bringing chicken saddles, assorted sizes bantam to standard.

    looking to purchase one blue laced red hen/pullet standard wyandotte.

    I lost yet another hen the other day to a hawk so they are no longer allowed to free range.

    darn it, this is the same day as the humane society's big auction. it's a not to miss event!and that said, I can't miss it so I will only be able to go to this chicken fest for a few hours.

    Ugh I wish I would have fixed the homemade incubator sooner...I could have hatched a few more of our cochin/amer. chicks(look at my avatar).

    Quote:correction- they are NOT on the same day
    farm fest is saturday oct 24 and humane society auction is oct 25th

    I have not gotten my card for the humane society auction but it starts at 12:00
    here is the info along with a link for a list of auction items up for bid. (mostly NOT animal related)
    12:00 – 1:00 Auction Preview & 50/50 Raffle Ticket Sales
    1:00 – 3:00 Silent Auction
    1:00 – 1:15 Welcome & Announcements
    1:15 – 3:00 Live Auction
    3:00 – 3:15 50/50 & Raffle Winners Announced and Checkout
    http://www.pethavenlane.org/kvhs/auction.htm

    they have both silent auction items as well as live auction items so check both lists!! excellant items such as round trip airfare on jet blue from portland to anywhere in the USA as well as many other items just as wonderful.

    Regarding the poultry show this Sunday at the Windsor Fairgrounds, does anyone know if it's a rain/shine event? It's supposed to be pouring all day?

    Quote:yes it is rain or shine because it is mostly indoors.
    the poultry building and then a show ring they use for the auction.
