    Are there ever any poultry shows in the IA/MN area? Or is this dead land for such?

    The only shows I know of are the county fairs (which I didn't go to this year) or the MN state fair, which I did go to and saw the many birds on display. As far as I know its not a swap or sale, but you can get the names of the people who exhibit.
    A couple of weeks ago a feed store in Forest Lake (about 30 miles NE of the twin cities) had a swap/sale. I went there to sell 5 of my roosters. At the swap there were more than just poultry; I also saw goats and baby pigs. there was a pretty good turnout.
    I sold my roos quickly and didn't hang around for fear of buying more chickens! lol
    Now, a few weeks later, I just saw some Barred Rock hens on craigslist and I'm going to contact the person and try to get some. 2 of the roos I sold were the only BR I had. So much for not getting any more![​IMG]

    Are they large shows or small as it is a 3 hour drive for me. Hopefully I will have some $$$ left at the end of the month depending how much I spend at Talladega.[​IMG]
