    Open to the Public -- Feel Free to come and look around

    Building opens at 6am for exhibitors to start cooping their birds. State Testers will be there till 9am. Due to the new laws, all birds from out-of-state exhibitors must be tested AI free within 14 days of the show or have been certified AI free by your state. Be sure to bring your papers/cards or you will not be allowed to enter your birds.

    Judges:
    Ronny Ledford - GA
    Frank Harris - VA

    Judging starts at 9am, all birds must be cooped by then. As a section is being judged it will be roped off. Interfences with Judges will not be allowed. While a section is roped off, please, enjoy the other sections. Sections will be reopened when the judge(s) move to different section. This allows the judges to do what they need to do quickly without interference, but keeping most of the show hall open to the public.

    There is always an Outside Sales Area. The show is just Old English, but there should be anything and everything in the sales area.

    The jamboree is this weekend. For those that don't particularly like OE, this is still a great show to go see all the different varieties(colors). Not to mention what you may find outside forsale that you just have to have.

    Is there only going to be one all breed show in Morganton this fall? I thought there were 2 in the spring and wasn't sure if there would be 2 this fall. I see this OE Jamboree listed in Nov. again this year and another show in Morganton but what about Unifour?

    Unifour is the Spring show that was in Salisbury and now in Morganton the first Saturday of March.

    OE jamboree is the first saturday of November, also used to be in Salisbury, but now in Morganton.

    The normal FPC all breed show is still the last Saturday of October(27th) in Morganton. About 6 weeks before a show I will make a thread in the show section with details for that show.

    If you come up for the October show I will bring 'Mystery' over for you to see. [​IMG] Being 10 miles from the fairgrounds is convenient.

    That would be neat. Not for her, I'm sure. I swear, you named her right! I have been hatching out from that pen all year myself and have not gotten anything that looks like that and have not sold the chicks. I keep wondering what heathen girl went wandering up beside another pen to get knocked up by something else. I think she looks like she is part buff Orp but old Adonis has never, ever given me fertile eggs.
    I would say she is joke from someone slipping an egg in there but those are rather unique looking eggs. You can't just pull one from somewhere else.
