    I will be there. Last year I had a BLAST, was my first show. I won the 50/50, the people were great, the vendors were great, the raffle was great, well...you get the picture.
    In my sale cage, a Birchen and splash Copper Marans, both cockerels. Maybe some Silkies. And unless my FBCM and my Wellie roos do well, they will also go bye-bye. Need the quiet, and the room!
    Will have some room if anyone needs an "egg train" thing to happen. Goind from eastern Long Island that morning EARLY, will also post in that thread.
    Anyone wondering about Peter Brown?, well First State Vet Supply will be there also!
    PM me if you need help with anything, Roberta

    Hey Marilyn!! I will have 2 pair of WLR Cornish bantams, and a very nice LF cochin hen, black mottled. But, she is the BROODIEST thing - I'm this close to killing her myself. A real find for someone who likes that sort of thing. She's a beautiful bird, from Jamie Matts yet, but she's gotta go. Can't wait to see you! I'll be there early this year because I won't be coming up the night before. Gotta save my money for Crossroads!! Are you showing? I have six birds coming.......because I'm insane.

    Roberta, I'm glad you had a good time at the last show. So, YOU were the one who took my 50/50 money, huh? Well, no tickets for you this year, then! I'll have some small things for the auction - stores a little scarce with the chicken paraphernalia. Make sure you look me up somewhere - ask at the show table. I'm all over the place all day.

    [​IMG] UPDATE - The entries are 870 and counting! [​IMG] Set-up is tomorrow evening, 4-5 pm, if anyone is in the area. Please help us out - that's a lot of birds to set up for!


    Roberta - there is NO limit on the donations - the more the merrier, and it does not have to be poultry related, although those are the things I like! (Like I need more chicken stuff!) Find the time to make those earrings!

    NYREDS - What are you judging, so I know to say hi?

    Satsuki - We never know what's going to show up in the sale area. Best thing to do is get there early. However, I happen to have a beautiful 18 month-old black mottled cochin hen that will be available. She's a bit on the small side for a cochin, and broody as all get-out, but gorgeous. She's from Jamie Matts.


    Marilyn - Can't wait to see you! Find me! [​IMG] Gonna take my Cornish off my hands? They're pretty cute!
