    Hi
    I had no idea there were meets for poultry. I am such a newbie. I've only gone to the local fairs. What is the schedule for this year? Did I miss them all already?


    Also, if you're in central MA and need cheap shavings or hay, drop me a note. We just hayed our fields, and we still have last year's crop to sell. I buy shavings in truckloads of 1200 bags at a time for my horses and sell the extra, and it's about a $1 or $2 cheaper per bag than the grain store. Lately a lot of chicken people have been buying the shavings, so I thought maybe I should let y'all know where to get them, too.
    Personally, I like the hay for nests instead. Or should I say my girls like the hay better?

    I hope I posted the second part in the right place. I know the first part is.


    ps- "Chickenstock" sounds like a hippie gathering of hens [​IMG]

    Anyone know of any that are happening in CT? I am more than willing to drive to MA or NH and there are a few that I was going to try to get to, however, I can't get an entry permit to cross state lines. When I bought my chicks at Agway they said they were vacc but gave me no proof. My vet doesn't do that, and even if I searched for a farm vet taht did, I really can't afford to take them to a vet just to try to give them away! [​IMG]

    I have atleast 1 accidental RIR roo, possibly 2 but don't know yet (they are 5 weeks). I am afraid they will end up being someone's dinner even though I didn't want them to be. I really wanted to try to find them a home on a farm, as unlikely as that was.
