    Just Googled Lebanon Fair, WOW! Looks like loads of fun! and did I read right? Free admission?? Oh My Goodness!!

    Heather, are you showing there? This is our first year in 4H. Our county has not had a Poultry Club in over 20 years, so there is no one with experience to lead us. My children and I are stumbling through the preparations for showing our birds. We have to supply our own cages and I'm really not sure what size to get.... we've never shown before. I hope to get ideas this weekend at the Cecil County Fair in MD. We've been relying on U~Tube for videos of other kids showing, bathing, ect... so we can figure out what may be expected of us.

    I have had chickens for years. I was going to show, then I changed my mind. The open show is on Saturday, and the youth 4-H one is one Sunday. I did practice grooming and it went really good. There are special cages that are used at the chicken show. I don't know much about them. I put a boat load of them together tonight. My county has there own. Were are you from???
    What county are you in?

    Craigslist Baltimore has them listed in Harford County, Md as recently as yesterday(the quail, I mean). I saw them in Westminster too.

    Hi fellow Southeasterner! I don't see many people on here from this part of the state. Welcome!! If you can't find him a home, there's always Craigslist.I have a Rhode Island Red roo on there right now. Someone will take him. BUT if you'd prefer him not to become someones dinner, you better make it perfectly clear, and really screen possible takers.

    A 'boat load'?! Really? Did you notice the dimensions? Google has not been a friend to me in that department this morning. I keep getting canary cages dimensions. And we are in Chester County.

    Welcome jennieschicks! 5 chickens 3 Roos? Isn't that always the way? Hope you find your Dominique a home.

    I'm pretty sure there is a hatchery in Gratz that sells quail.
