    The myth: There is a breed of chicken known as a Silver Penciled Plymouth Rock

    [​IMG]

    The reality: I can't find ANY!!! No eggs, chicks, poults, ZIP!

    I'm heading to the NW Poultry show in Stevenson, Wa. next month in hopes that I can find a lead on a rumor of someone who may know somebody that has heard of an individual that just might have some stock for sale next Spring.

    If you have heard of such an individual that breeds this chicken, would you please message me?
    I'm looking to start a small flock this coming Spring.

    Thank you

    Stevenson is a great show. Even if you have completed your quest for the great silver penciled rock, you should come check it out. The venue is gorgeous and there are some really great exhibitors.

    I'll be the gal with silkies and showgirls for sale curled up with some 'light' pathophys reading [​IMG].

    Look forward to seeing you there.
