    Same event just a new thread with updated info (old link) https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=382346

    Please
    note....We have changed things a bit on the alcoholic beverage front...IF you want to bring your own wine and beer that is fine, HOWEVER the house will purchase wine/beer and have it for sale for a nominal fee...We felt that this might be the most fair solution as it takes pressure off the house to share it's personal stash without compensation...thanks!

    Date: October 10th, SUNDAY - 11am - 3pm

    Location: Cheryl Cohen's home PM me for directions in Lafayette
    There will be a truck marked "BYC Courtesy Shuttle" run by my son, Brandon. He will take you from the top of the hill at woodview court/woodview drive intersection to our home (park on Woodview DRIVE and wait till you see the truck OR you can walk it's only 4 houses down the hill)

    What to bring - this is the fun part...we have a google docs spreadsheet created at this link. When you go there you may see your name, as I transposed the respondents from the earlier thread. If you see your name please complete the form and if you are not on there just simply add your information. Google docs allows us to have this "living" document and all information is saved the instant you enter it!

    FOOD SIGNUP

    Please DO NOT wear your coop shoes, however there will be Oxine available to spray on your shoes in case you forget!

    UPDATE! We can now post pics of any birds or eggs you'd like to sell can be posted at this link. Jeremy has offered to have you email him and he will post so the info is all the same and uniform

    I'll have to think about it and check my schedule, but I may be able to make it to this seeing as I have two week notice! [​IMG] The Northern California Chickenstock was fun and I'd love to meet more chicken people and maybe swap some birds! I'll post closer to the date confirming whether I can or cannot make it.

    I wish I could attend, but I have another obligation that day. Do you hold this event annually?

    My friend and I are having fun and learning so much about backyard chickening [​IMG] and all that it involves.

    It's looking more and more like I'm going to make the trip! This just sounds so fun! I added myself to the spreadsheet. I'm not signing up for food yet, I have to decide what I'm going to make.

    CherylCohen, I'll probably have to take you up on a couple of cochin bantams! I loved my cochin I used to have, she passed away over a year ago. [​IMG] I bought a red cochin chick, but she had severe coccidiosis when I got her and unfortunately didn't pull through. Calico and mille fleur cochins are beautiful, I'd love to have some! [​IMG]

    I have two OEGB cockerels I may bring along, but only if someone wants them. I don't want to take them the whole three hour drive only to have no one want them! One is BB red, one is black, and they're completely friendly, gorgeous guys. They're from breeder stock and they're well-behaved little gentlemen to people and hens alike. They get along great with each other, you can take one or both. Please PM me if interested at all! I know cockerels aren't popular, especially with hatchaholics, but these guys are so great and they're excellent prospects for breeding. They make perfect pets, too, they're very tame!

    I can also bring fertile eggs of the following on request: Seramas (purebred), mixed mostly bantams (that will definitely turn out interesting! See my signature that says what I have), guinea fowl, large ducks (rouen/black swedish mix), or coturnix. Just PM me ahead of time if anyone wants some!
