    I'm desperate for five or six decent show quality hens. Our flock gradually dwindled away to two birds, and here I am a week before blood testing for the county fair with next to nothing to show. I realize the county fair is not taken terribly seriously by most exhibitors, but I'm a kid who rarely gets the chance to show elsewhere. I take the fair very, very seriously.

    Do you have any idea where I could get what I need? I'm not picky about breeds, but they must be standard hens. I'd really appreciate any help at all!

    Look under the buy, sell, trade section on here and you may find some.

    I have changed the title of your thread to WTB: Show Quality Hens.

    To list a topic as 'help' means you have a health emergency and most people won't look at it. be specific in your thread titles and yo will have more success.

    I am moving this to the Buy/Sell/Trade forum.

    I saw them, but she says she can't sell only the hens. Otherwise, I'd snatch up the d'Uccles!

    A tad selfish, I know, but I'm desperate.

    see if you can get your hands on the poultry press. in there are many breeders selling birds. i'm sure you'll find someone in there close to you who can give you some of their culls. it's breeding season right now (well, it is for us that show in texas) and so it may be hard getting a hen, but it's worth a try.

    You can also check eggbid.com and see who has what, and maybe you can get in contact with some of the sellers [​IMG]
