    You can coop-in the night before from 5-10 or you can coop-in from 7-9am. As long as your birds are in place by 9am day of the show your good.

    I would bring some birds for sale if I weren't driving back from San Diego back home that day. I don't want to take a 3 day trip with the birds, lol.

    If I can convince my husband to stop by I will!
