    Any of you going the show there Oct 29-30. I will be there showing Swing , Siliasion and Horseman Pouters. I will also be selling about 16 pouters in the the For Sale section. These breeds are all very good flyers. I have open loft all day and they are a sight to see. They fly much like a homer only they blow while flying.

    I've been wanting to pretty badly, though I don't think I'll be able to make it. Can't seem to talk anyone into driving me 100 miles to see birds [​IMG]

    Ill be there or be square! (I'm pretty much round shaped now)

    Its a 12 hour run for me but I'm gonna make it. Ill be around the fantail area mostly but I do plan on coming home with some highflyers or NY flights. Really looking foreward to pilfering around in the sale area!

    I'm sure I'd be getting myself in trouble if I went there with money, I went to a poultry show yesterday with the intentions of 'just looking' and came home with 4 more ringneck doves and a pair of ringed teal ducks [​IMG]

    I don't drive, so I'm kinda stuck if I can't find a ride [​IMG] But I'll plan all year next year to come and WILL be showing some doves! I think I'm addicted, they are so cool [​IMG]

    Me and three of my buddys are going! Can't wait. I want to get some Brunner pouters and a trap door.If anyone is just thinking about it be sure and go. Its amasing to see so many breeds of pigeons.

    Pretty birds!
    I used to have runts. I wish they would have retained the utility type instead of having nothing but show type. I like the utility look more [​IMG] They looked like homers but giant sized.

    That red check is beautiful! I sure would have loved to have some of them but they won't fit in my pocket book!lol. Keep us informed,I wonder how well they produce.
    I picked up 6 brunner pouters. Two from ghulst who started this thread. They are very nice. And he is a great guy too!I took some pics at the show and will load them later.
