    OH, I know all too well. Let's see, I have 11 Seramas, 3 Silkies and 5 D'Uccles. That's why I must resist. I've made up my mind to concentrate on Seramas for Bantams, and this spring to start building up my Layer flock. I like Bantams waaay too much, especially Bantam Cochin's. I've been resisting them for a year now, and then Blarney goes and post's those pics. I'm wearing down.

    I have come to the conclusion that I am going to have to move closer to all you ENABLERS. I NEED chicks.

    Bower, Great Link! I had planned on attending but it slipped off the radar, thank you for the reminder!

    Heather, I'll be at Delmarva, just am not sure if I have anyone show worthy right now.

    Just looked at Delmarva again. Show is not till 23rd of March, entries due March 8th, should give me enough time to make a decision.

    This is a National Meet for Belgian D'Uccles and Booted Bantams Club. The wording here is throwing me, I'm wondering if this is just for D'Uccles, or does it include all feather legged Bantams. I would not show in these categories, just wondering if I could expect to see a lot of Silkies, Banty Cochins, Banty Langshans...hmmmm. Anyone know?
