**edited to add date/time/location


After the last one back in October (held in Albany, OR), I know there was some mention/interest in having one this spring. Is anyone interested? I'm pretty open to dates and places but would really love to get one put together. I'll even have chicks/chickens to bring this time

I am very interested. Depending on if & when you all decide I should have polish & EE bantam chicks that I could bring. Let's hope we hear from others.

Yes, let's hope! I'd love some Polish chicks if you do end up having them. I will only have cockerels (at the moment) - standard and bantam.

Anyone else????

I'll make sure I put in an order before the swap! As for the Silkies, lol you know me...I love them. What colors do you think they'll be? I just got a couple blue girls...love them!

A lot of your other ones sound interesting too!

Let's do this! What month should we look at and should we try for Albany again or???

I will be able to bring:

6 young cockerels from my Golden Laced Cochin Bantam rooster....3 of them are crossed with a standard EE hen and the other 3 my little Black Japanese hen.


I also had a fairly large hatch from Pamperedpoultry's eggs in January that include the following cockerels:

1 self blue OEGB, 2 spangled OEGBs, 5 barred OEGBs, at least 1, maybe 2 black bantam cochins, possibly a mottled Frizzle and a couple black smooth Sizzles (still waiting to confirm the sex on the Frizzle and Sizzles) and maybe a lavender cochin (still waiting to sex this one too).

I've been thinking about a chicken tractor so I'd love to see you come. I'm just waiting to hear what month people would like to do this and then we can set a date. I want to make sure everyone will have their chicks ready.
