    there's another show, not too far in May, in Sussex County. I think it's a big one. It's in Augusta, New Jersey. Quite a few of the BYCers that I met in MA are showing birds there. Looks like they'll be selling all kinds of birds and eggs and such.

    Missy: How cool! I haven't signed up, I have a hatch due that day, and am afraid to be away that long, I could probably trust DH and DS with the hatch, but haven't committed to that idea yet.

    the show is on May 19th. Sussex County Poultry Fanciers has a Facebook page with more info - I haven't seen it, I don't have a Facebook page. I don't know the name of the show, but when I googled 'Sussex County Poultry Show, Augusta, NJ' I came up with last Spring and this Fall's show info and that gave me an idea of what to expect.

    In the bator I've got:
    Bantam Mille Fleur Cochins (6)
    EE's (10) -3 clear
    English Orpingtons (12) 9 clear. =(
    White Leghorn/Barred Holland Cross (2)

    If I ever figure out how to search on facebook (i can barely post pics!) I'll look for it...

    Sorry that all the english orpingtons are clear....I don't really understand incubating....but I at least understand that's not a good sign.

    Is that the Delmarva Poultry Conference? I see info on previous conferences on the U of Md website, nothing for 2012.. Did you contact Jennifer Timmons? ..or am I looking in the wrong spot?


    Sounds like you need a AC adapter for the car and a generator for the shows!! [​IMG] Good luck with your hatches!

    Thanks for posting some upcoming shows!! I like the idea of 1 -2 day shows. The only "shows" I've been to are the farm shows where the animals need to be there the entire week. I don't think I could part with them (or trust them there) for an entire week!

    That ought to do it, LOL! I have no patience with that kind of silliness on the dog owners part. [​IMG] We have a Lab who roams the neighborhood here , so my birds can't free range, [​IMG] . He comes "visiting" every once and a while. I think he is brain damaged, or mightily stupid. [​IMG] Full grown and acts like a dumb puppy. Lately, they have figured out how to keep him from going thru their rickty fence. In spite of the fact they didn't listen to my sensible suggestion for a lovely trolley between the two big trees in their backyard. [​IMG]
    One of the collie bitches we bred has a temperment of a police dog, very driven girl. [​IMG] That's ok, for a while we bred purpose-bred working collies. Anyway, I have to watch her around the poultry. They're fluffy and move and she wants to snuff them. [​IMG] Part of her working drive. I let her out one day to run to the back dog run. Unfortunately, I had accidently forgotten to close the coop door and the Marans were outside happily eating bugs by their run....until my girl showed up and grabbed one. [​IMG] I screamed at her and she dropped the hen [​IMG] (who was ok, except for some missing feathers). I called the collie to me... she came,.... spitting feather the width of the ybackyard [​IMG] I still wonder if she learned her lesson. Probably not. [​IMG] But at least I know now she will drop a bird If I command her too. She's really a great collie, the best working collie we ever brd, just not a chicken herder like her mother.

    I will be driving up to Pennsylvania next weekend, weather permitting. Have a trio of German New Hampshire for sale. 2 German Pullets and German/American cock. Nice nice trio. Love the rooster. Doug Akers lines. If anyone is interested in purchasing them, PM me for details. They would need to be paid for in advance before I load them up for a 6 hour drive! LOL
