    Would you come? Just curious before I invest weeks of planning into it...dont want to waste tons of time if there are only 3 pple in the area [​IMG]

    If I had it, it would be on my property, and I personally have BCmarans and peafowl to offer.

    Please let me know if you think you would consider coming and if you have any tips for a first timer please let me know! I think this could be amazing fun!!

    Here are Pictures I took from our last swap. They are not in any particular order. I wish I'd taken more. There were several BYC members whose pictures I didn't get a chance to take. Every time I went to walk around to get some pictures someone would come by the BYC table, so I tried not to wander off too far.

    Are all those people in those pics from BYC? I would love to go to a swap just to look, it looks like a ton of fun. I doubt my parents would take me though. [​IMG]
