does anyone have any info on where it is held? thanks bill
Yes, It's at the Lancaster Building at State Fair Park.
Its also free and on Saturday runs from 7 am to 7 pm.
Have any of you guys been there before?
I went to the show today, it was really neat. They also are having it tomorrow mornin til noon, but I am not sure how many birds would be left, a lot were taking theirs home right after the judging today.
They had THE most beautiful mottled cochin hen I have ever seen, in pics OR in life. She was a doozy! And lots of birds for sale, oh my goodness. One sad looking pair had a silent auction bid of $6. By sad, I mean, they looked sad that no one wanted them, poor things. Its like they knew. They were pretty birds too. I had never been before, I guess they have it every year on this weekend, and folks come from all over. The birds were treated nicely, folks were runnin all over making sure they had food and water, unlike the fair, where they get too hot and run out of food/water and no one seems to mind. I was impressed.
Oh, and NO blue orpingtons! I wanted to see some in real life. Dang! Oh and I now I feel bad, cuz that abandoned bird I found on my front porch that I DIDNT rescue, I thought it was a darned piping plover, now I am pretty sure it was and young old english game bantam hen after seeing them. (Like kkrezik's (sp?) Lily that showed up in her yard. So now I feel like I didnt take care of a chicken that tried to come to me for help.
But anyhow, it was fun, well worth it.
I'm going to go in the morning, I had to work today. One of my bantams died Tuesday and I'm looking to find another so my other one isn't lonely. I also have three standards but they picked on the others so much we build a separate coop for them. Now the one is alone and I feel so sorry for her. I'm hoping to find another one that's been picked on and is looking for a friend too.
