    Thanks for the compliments. I take great pride in making my crates. If you just want to attend, I would "google" Mid-Atlantic Poultry Expo and see what info you can get. From the literature that I received there will be seminars on egg incubation, as well as lots of other topics.
    If you wanted to be a vendor the deadline for registration is Jan. 27th. If you plan on bringing birds, they must be tested by Jan. 25th. I don't think you have to register if you just want to attend, but check their website for more details. If you decide to go, stop by my table and take a closer look at my wood products.

    Looks like there are two threads for the same show. Not much activity on either one. Is anybody going?

    Great turn out for the first year. The people that ran the show were very accommodating and I met a lot of great poultry fanciers.
