    [​IMG] I'm so excited!

    Coach ~ you never know what will be there until you get there, unfortunately!

    I'll have some chickens and ducks for sale (bantams, though) if they don't sell before then in the parking lot and I know my aunt is bringing chickens for sale.

    As to what anyone else brings, it's anyones guess! :)

    No, you just never know until you get there. People come from hours away, though to show and sell.

    6 more days! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I'll be bringing (to sell) three pairs of australian spotted bantam ducks, 5 silkies...not sure what else.

    My ducks and silkies are pending sale so may not be at the show after all. Will have a trio of OEGB and a pair of cochins for sale.

    The 2 hens I am showing are ready to be on display. Noel, Black standard cochin hen, was easy to get clean and ready. Nicolette, Splash standard cochin hen, took 3 baths to remove the red from her belly and feet. She loved that Carolina clay mud hole. Her feet feathers are still a bit dingy, but not to terribly bad.
