    Thank you aoxa, yes my eggs are fertile and it's been less than a week. Now to separate certain hens with a certain rooster.

    delisha, I am so drooling over your coop set up. Thank you for sharing with us. A little dust between friends is nothing! lol

    I have no interest in showing my birds but would welcome any information on any breed that you all would share. Thank you! Sue

    Ok then! I don't want to step on copy right toes so I won't say where I got a lot of my stuff. Let's just say I've been collecting it for many years from many places, countries, and such.
    Here is a little taste. Let me know if this is what you have in mind.

    Where does this one come from? (I'm thinking of buying the SOP...) But...I'd love to see photos of REAL chickens that meet SOP...does a book of that exist?

    Show results from nationals would have pictures.

    Here are some for a regional show we had. I did not attend. It was the same weekend we left to get our gander in Ontario.

    Note that the grand champion of show was the breeder of my geese! Jamie's ganders are real lookers.
