    I'm going. I'll have:
    8 week old females: brown egg laying mixes
    8 week old male: olive egger
    14ish week old roosters: white leghorn (who is so sweet), marans cross and some feathered legged/crested freakshow

    I also currently have 1 week old(ish) baby turkens (which will lay an olive green or brown egg, depending on cross) and regular feathered olive eggers for sale. I am pretty sure I'm not bringing them to the swap, but I'm very near Augusta if anyone is interested in meeting me somewhere to get them.

    Pictures of two of the turkens today:

    Not going to make the Boston Show this week end, have to work Sunday night soooo we are going to come on Saturday.

    Still have the following:

    Buff Faverolle project chicks-some are buff some other colors most all the the 5 toes and featherlegs $6.00 each or 2 for $10.00, they are about 9-10 weeks old.

    valencian figuritas pigeons, these little pigeons are great they do very well hatching their own young (or anyone elses) and are very easy to tame and they are about the size of a cockatiel. Have a few young pairs $20.00 per pair and also have singles males for $10.00 each. Can of course do better if you are interested in more than one pair [​IMG]

    Single Adult Males:
    Self Blue D'anver $8.00
    White Old English $8.00
    Barred Old English $8.00
    Few Silkie males left $10.00 each

    Single Hens
    Little barnyard mix $10.00
    Serema $15.00
    Brassy Back Old English $15.00

    Have a few retired pigeons looking for great pet homes.

    Also have 5 hen turkeys, make an offer would prefer not to bring them unless they are pre-sold and you have a crate for them [​IMG], we don't live far from Augusta so they can even be picked up here.


    I am sure there will be others too.

    I really don't need any more birds @ this point, but I WTB a pol Ameraucana/Araucana/Easter Egger, just to round out the flock. It is still a big deal for my small children to collect eggs and they would get a kick out of finding a different color other than brown & white. If anybody has one to sell, I will make the trek to Augusta. Thanks.
