    This is a really cool idea! I wish I had more time on my hands where I could plan for these things. I SO wanted to go to the meet and greet but couldn't do that either [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Just posting here because it has been quite a while and I was hoping some more people could see this for their kids to obtain some nice show birds.

    WIChookchick, I believe they are going to be doing it yearly. And I am not sure why they have to be 8 years old.
