    Where: Cocke County A&I Fairgrounds, Newport TN
    When: Saturday, May 2nd 2009
    Judges: Gary Overton & David Johnston

    Entry Deadline is Sunday, April 26, 2009

    All birds must be in place by 9am May 2nd.

    There will be a silent auction, and down-home cooking at the Concession Stand.
    Sale birds are welcome, at no charge to our exhibitors. (Doesn't say if there's a charge for non-exhibitors.)

    There were a LOT of beautiful birds for sale at the fall show last year. Get there early for the best selection [​IMG]



    A car & truck show will also be on the fairgrounds that weekend, so Newport will be a very busy place!!

    I'll be there, too! Have to find each other & say hey.
    I met Bodyflight & her DH at the one last year [​IMG]

    BTW: Birds have to be pullorum tested but they can do that there for free.
    Entry fee is $2 per bird, $4 if double-cooped. Plus add $1 clean-up fee per person. So if you enter 4 birds, it would be $8 for the birds + $1 clean-up. Make sense?

    E-mail me if you want a copy of the entry form, and can open pdf files...

    DH can't get the scanner working yet. There's enough time to call and request the forms, though, and they come with a Gate Pass. That will come in handy since there's a car show on the same site that weekend.

    Hi Ya'll, I'm in Sevier County with 'wegotchickens'. Is the show just for those with chickens to show or can anybody come? If so, how much for admission? Not sure if I will be able to or not since right now DH has a bad leg and can barely walk, but if he should be better by then I would love to come and check it out. I've always loved seeing all the chickens at the Fair when I've gone.

    I think somebody mentioned "chickens for sale" and that definitely caught my attention because I'm just now starting my collection and working on building a coop. Right now I only have three babies, which I dearly love, that my Sevier County Chicken Friend, wegotchickens, was sweet enough to give me. (I've tried hatching but no luck so far but will keep trying till I get it right.) I'm already planning on buying some more from her that she is hatching but since I would like to have a big variety (2 of each breed I like) maybe I can find some that I want there too if I get to come. I like standard breeds the best and want some that love to lay eggs as much as I love to eat them. :)
