    I'm so TOTALLY in this time around... I mean it's in my own backyard. I can't say no! [​IMG]
    I'd love to help organize or strategize, or whatever you need help with. Count me in.

    Quote:I am with you! I wanted to talk to so many people but just couldn't. I'm going to do cheesecakes of course, and my Serama hatching eggs, but that's it. I want to socialize...and not have to pay people to take my roosters [​IMG] It was so totally worth those two cheesecakes though!

    Sweet Home, OR
    WHAT ARE YOU PEOPLE DOING TO US?!?!?! OKAY....

    Bringing

    Dominiques, Orpingtons and Americaunas
    - Hatching eggs... These will probably be fall breeding pens by then
    - Chicks (I'll hatch them about a month before the swap, I hope, so will be nearly feathered out)
    - Started Laying Pullets
    - Meat Cockerels.. Eating birds, delicious, free range birds that will be great size for eating by fall swap time!
    - Breeding Pullets - we will be hatching more eggs here soon, and should have several extra pullets of each breed to bring to the fall swap.
    - Breeding Cockerels - we breed to standard and will have more cockerels than we need for our programs.

    BY REQUEST!!!!
    I will hatch out chicks of a breed of your choice. I'll try first to find local hatching eggs, but might ship them in if I can't find a breeder to meet me at one of the shows here in the Northwest. Will raise them at least a month before swap, but I have to know way ahead of time to make the connections. I only like to buy show quality/breeder quality eggs, and I prefer hatching American and heritage English birds, but wouldn't mind doing a few other breeds. Please no silkies! [​IMG] Prices will vary - cost of the eggs, age of the chicks by the swap, etc. I do keep track of all my expenses including electric for incubating and brooding, so I know what my bottom line is per day, varying a small amount with feed efficiency of the chicks.


    Wanting

    - Always want show/breeder quality hatching eggs, I love American and English breeds, heritage is always good [​IMG]
    - Food to can/preserve! I will have a first year garden this year, so I'm looking for fruits/veggies to preserve - would like to buy in bulk!
    - Might consider a nice B/B/S Orpington pullet or two, nice large show/breeder quality birds
    - A nice Blue Americauna pullet with lines to compliment what Rhonda's got already... please email me - my inbox is super full!

    OK Here goes. Since I was next to you at the Spring Swap WallTenters I have to put in my 2 cents worth now!![​IMG]

    It was such a great day and so very much fun, and my only regret was that I was by myself at my booth and I didn't have enough time to go around
    and really talk to all of you, besides a passing introduction. I hope to remedy that at this next one.[​IMG]
