    Decatur is just north of Dallas, quite a way from the Panhandle (8hrs+). Abilene is over 6 hrs I think.

    Where in the Panhandle are you? We're in NM, visit Amarillo fairly often.

    Yes that is quite a distance from us --

    We're a straight shot from NM -- El Camino restaurant sound familiar?? DH is ALWAYS in NM for cutters and choppers!

    I am in the middle of the OK panhandle! I am closer to Amarillo and such than most other places! What are ya'll into and looking to sell or trade or just look at! I sometimes go to Amarillo and set up at the flea market...if ya'll wanna set a date and time let me know I would love to come and might bring some friends!

    Well I don't know! I just saw that a lot of the other regions had regular "bird meetings" I think??? I wasn't sure how the swap worked .... I am wanting quail eggs but I am on a list now for February.

    Amarillo used to, or still does, have a bantam club. I'm not sure how active they are though if they're still around.

    Are you near Tulia? We're about an hr north of Tucumcari, 2.5hrs from Amarillo.

    I have a few spare [​IMG]

    We should arrange a local swap of our own. Even swapping eggs via mail would probably help with hatching.

    I agree! I just started in chickens and have 5 EE's that are young now. It will be a while! BUT, I do have golden cuckoo marans, cuckoo marans, and pure blue/blue wheaten ameracaunas in the bator due to hatch out on the 30th and the 2nd. So, those are good lines that I will feel good about swapping! I will probably have lots of "boys" that I don't need - LOL

    We are finally closing on our "country" house this week so I will be happy to get more babies. I just don't want to be overrun though!! We stay so busy between the kids, showing and their activities right now. And moving on top of that! ha ha
