    Hey all, I just got the flyer for the Waverly swap. I am a little disapointed since I thought usually it was at the end of April, this year it is April 6th. It should stillbe a lot of fun but maybe a few less baby animals. I will hopefully have ducklings and then chicks to take. Along with some roos and a few other odd balls. Hope to see a bunch of fellow BYC Iowans and surounding staters there. Jenn

    I will try to scan it later and post it. I am not sure if I can, otherwise I can email it to you tonight. Living, have you ever gone to the Kankakee, IL swap? From what I have heard that one is a little over twice as big as Waverly. Jenn

    The first year I went there were a few turkey hatching eggs but also after I bought a dozen and took them home I didnt have any grow, they were not fertile. I took goose eggs last year and didnt sell any of them. Most people are looking for chicks or older. Jenn

    wow that is early this year. The way it's going there's still going to be snow on the ground lol.
    It's a good show I picked up some laying hens cheap last spring.
