    Thanks for the fix. I just cut and pasted the email. Not sure I even tried the website.

    It sounds like a worthwhile day! I have it on my calendar too. [​IMG]

    It sounds like there will be some poultry available for purchase. Anybody know who might be selling? I'm thinking of getting replacement chicks this spring, but if some good breeders will have stock there, I might take boxes/ crates with me and set up the brooder before I go...hate to miss an opportunity to get some good stock, but don't know what to expect. Jan, are you looking for Wellsummers? I only need a few chicks--Wonder if could combine order somehow?

    I've already signed up. I'll be in the vendor area with my wooden chicken carriers.
