    Is anyone going to any poultry shows in Oklahoma this fall? The upcoming ones I know of are:
    The third week of October - Guthrie, OK
    The fourth weekend in October - McAlester, OK
    The second weekend of November - Idabel, OK
    Dec. 8-9 - Shawnee, Ok


    I HOPE to go to all of these, so let me know if you are going and we can meet at the show

    I would, but I don't think I have any birds good enough to show.

    Well, you can always just go to look around [​IMG] Then, you have an idea of what your birds should look like, and you might decide to show the next time.
    What do you raise?

    Well, now... I didn't think about that! Silly me! The one in McAlester isn't too far from where I am either. Is it during the weekend or a week day?

    I have OEG Black bantams (6 pullets, 5 roosters), 1 pair of black-tailed white japanese bantams (too cute!), standard dark cornish (5 pullets, 3 roosters), standard rhode island red (2 pullets, 1 rooster), cubalaya (2 pullets, 2 roosters), barred rocks (3 pullets, 1 rooster), dominique (1 rooster), Ancona (1 pullet, 3 roosters), Black Star (1 pullet), Black Star x OEG bantam (1 pullet) and a few others I haven't yet identified with any specific breed. I've purchased most of mine from farm and ranch stores, so they probably aren't *pure* by any means. lol

    I have a mixture of chicks in brooder boxes (polish, ameracaunas, RIR, BO, silkies, and a few other bantams)

    Oh, um, the one in McAlester is cancelled:( Sorry.
    I don't know exactly how "south east" you live here in OK, but Idabel is very south east, so you might be close to it, too.
    Cool, you've got a pretty neat assortment of chickens. I have a BTW Japanese little hen, too. Hey you wouldn't be thinking of selling that pair would you [​IMG]

    Aww... well, yes... Idabel is a bit further, but probably would be worth the trip. I'm near the Antlers area.

    Thanks! I loves me chickens. And the Jap pair, I want them to breed and produce babies. My Jap hen recently hatched out some chicks but they were Jap x OEG [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I must thin out the OEG rooster population.... Know anyone who might want one? lol

    Aw, Idabel should only be about an hour from you, then. That's not far at all for a ll [​IMG]

    I probably do know someone who'd want a couple of the OEGs. Are they bantams? What are you asking for them?

    Yes they are bantam, and solid black. I believe they're a little over a year old now. If I get home early enough tonight I'll take some pictures and post them. I was wanting $5 ea for them.

    Graceful, Where are you from? I am just east of OKC. I know they usually have some bantam shows in Newcastle this time of year. My neighbor shows bantams all over the country but I haven't talked to him in awhile. I do plan to go to the "big one" in Shawnee.

    ChicknGurl, okay. I'll let my friend kknow, then I'll get back to you.

    Buckguy20, I'm from Durant. There was a poultry show in Newcastle at the first of this month (I was there), but thanks. I'll probably see you at Shawnee, then. [​IMG]
