    Hoppy did you do the egg??? That is awesome!!!! Sarah may have a couple of pigeons to show and that's about it, after the last attack all the show birds were put into breeding pens to work on getting some built up again. This happened to her about three years ago too and worked her stock from scratch again. Some of the breeds I think she is just going to give up, some she will work back up again. Probably not the waterfowl this time around, though.

    Quote:yes I did make the egg, thank you. I know how it really sucks to lose birds. my one blue laced red wyandotte that I was going to show got dragged off into the woods. found her the next day, soaking wet due to the rain but alive, just not showable.

    Yeah, it really stinks at least she still has her show stock she can breed, just puts her out of showing probably for a year. Didn't lose her best cornish and her buff silkies that she is been working on for 5 years, some of the buffs but her best stuff was in our spare room [​IMG]

    Pigeons were not hit, probably they were too fast. So she is showing 1 pigeon for this show.

    We will still be there helping out on Saturday and for the show. She will have a few that no longer have mates that she will bring to sell.

    Might be a silly question..is this show open for the public? I know to sell you have to be a member..but to attend and possible buy do you have to be a member?

    come ready to buy, usually is alot of good quality stock (and some backyard pets too). prices are very reasonable.
