    It's that time of year again for the best show in the northeast.
    http://www.poultrycongress.com/ It's in Springfield Mass at the Big E fairgrounds.
    January 19-20, 2013
    I am posting this very late, as the original poster never answered me.
    Entries must be postmarked by December 27.
    So get out of your winter blues and come see all the beautiful birds entered and some others for sale in the sale room next door over.
    And you will have a chance to buy some great stuff from the vendors.
    Mareks vaccine is now off backorder, and Peter Brown from First State Vet Supply will have it.
    http://www.firststatevetsupply.com/store2/vaccines/live-vaccines/mareks-vaccine.html
    And I will have my chicken earring table there. If you have been to Sussex Co NJ shows, you may have seen my wares.

    So let us know what you will are looking to buy or sell, and maybe we can do some pre-orders on this thread.
    And make life so much easier.

    Hope to see you there!
    Roberta

    I'm interested in 100% pure English LF black and white Orpingtons or bantam chocolate Orpingtons.
    My husband and I will be there hopefully picking up a few birds.

    I have a few peeps interested in BLR Wyandottes.
    If you have chicks or birds available, please post here.
    Thanks!

    I will be bringing Silkie chicks, mostly Blue and Splash.

    Good for you, Roberta!

    I have officially lost my mind - I have 14 LF and 1 bantam on my entry list. It's only that short because the others are still molting. Where the heck am I going to put all of these wet birds in this weather?!

    Who's up for a bird-bathing party?

    Just noticed I can't spell... I wonder If I can change the title?
    Let's see if I can screw this one up, too!

    OOH it worked! yay.
    I have 10 birds entered. Luckily half are bantams.

    And I have a surprise for the auction table.
    So cool my husband told me to find another, that he was keeping it.
    Now I have to drive to another store, they transferred them in for me.

    The host hotel is the Sheraton, I don't think there are any rooms left.
    I still have a reservation at the Red Roof, I reserved it months ago, and then a friend wanted me to share her room at the Sheraton.
    Red Roof is WAY cheaper, just look them up for Springfield, MA
    Should be around $65 a nite.

    Would like to see a naked neck win grand champion. I might go next year so I can make it happen.

    Thank you, Roberta. I just asked my hubby to reserve something.
