    I might be...if you promise not to tell DH!


    I would...but then, I'm evil...I kicked a bunch of mine out at 4 weeks old last year.


    Ok...next question...is there an entrance fee? If we are heading back from Nolde early enough, I may try to convince DH to go.



    Cause we like to talk?


    Of course you would...all the people with BYC nametags.


    Ok for those of you semi-close to me....which is really noone...but anyway. Went in to the Agway in Carlisle today....they have what appear to be 1-2 week old New Hampshire Reds and I swear Wyandottes of some sort (only the NH's are labeled for $3.15. Buy one get one free...so that's $1.57 per bird!

    What do you mean you won't know anyone....? What about all us? I FEEL like I know you all.

    It's a tad shy of a 2 hr drive for me, and my kids are older and will be interested in the show, so probably not as much of a burden for me. Also, I don't know how many birds are going to be in the show, some shows have a disappointing turn out, and it stinks to take on a long drive and none of the breed you are interested in are there. But it's a super place to network, some of the breeders are kind, and enthusiastic about their breed, when u get to meet someone like this, gain their knowledge and possibly get a good breeder bird from them, it is totally worth the drive.

    I'm guessing they're larger than the Grange Fair show, but it's hard with little ones. I could leave them with G, but then I'd be bored sinless for the 5.5 hours in the car. Even short 1 hour drives seem boring without kids to drive you crazy, lol. *sigh* I suppose I'll see how I feel that morning.

    Missy, I doubt there will be a fee.

    Betta, I ordered a book on tape especially for this drive. I hope the library calls by tomorrow.

    Thanks for the info in the duck eggs, Wing, Eli and Silkiesensation, I put them right in the incubator. Moved the broody to a different brood box by herself, she ate, then sat most of the day...I was walking the duck eggs back out to her and my Great Pyr scared her off the nest. So...maybe tomorrow.

    Good luck with the eggs!

    I am considering going to the swap meet at TSC in Indiana this weekend. I think it's 7-11am & just over 2 hours from me (which means I'd be leaving home around 4am [​IMG]). If any of you would be interested in meeting me there to get your birds let me know ASAP (includes you Missy...lol) so I can decide if I really want to get up that early or not. I want to make sure the trip is going to be worth making & how many birds I should try to stuff into my car for a 4 1/2 hour round trip with 5 hours of unloading, standing around & reloading in between. I REALLY don't want to drag very many birds back home with me...LOL

    What is the main difference between EE, OE and rainbow layers? Gets a little confusing after awhile.

    Hello all. I have 6 RIR's that are currently 2 weeks old. I am in the process of building a coop for them. I put together a 4x4 frame but am now wondering if that will be big enough. They will have a decent sized run plus free range time. What do you think?
