    Hello Everybody!
    It's time to start thinking about the WV Chicken Stock at Tractor Supply in Martinsburg on April 23,2011.
    This year we would like to do 3 chicken stocks again.
    We have always done them the last Sat in April and Sept. We would like to keeps those dates. Just need help on the 3rd sale. I was thinking about mid summer if we all can come up with a date for that we can get everything up and going. Erin is no longer NPIP and can not sale at the swaps and has passed everything down to help me get it set up for us. (Still helping out- such a very nice lady~ Thank You Erin!) Jonathan will be at my house to test this Friday so I can let him know then and get everything set up with him. Of course will need help getting flyers out and passing the word about the sale.
    If you want your site listed on the Blog about the stock please e-mail the info to me or Erin as the site is still hers and she is willing to up date it for us.
    It is only about 3 months away so we need to be making plans on what we will be hatching and bringing. Hope everyone had a Great Holiday Season and a Happy New Year!

    I can put flyers in local feed stores here. How about a free ad in the Valley Trader? Maybe end of June for the middle of the summer swap?
    Thanks for taking up the reins, Tonya. We all appreciate it.

    ok so one vote for June to have the 3rd sale (2nd in order)
    Thank you.
    Alot of us count on these stocks to sell off breeder culls and to help pay for the food/Elec. bills over the winter.
    If you are going to set up please let me know so we can get the list of what could be there and about how many there will be.
    Hope to see everyone and some new faces this year too.

    Also I wanted to see what time everyone wanted to start it. The set time before was 8am-noon.
    What do you think would be better of these?
    8am -1pm
    ---------------------10am-2pm has been voted out!---------------------------------------
    I know some had trouble getting set up before 8am and getting rushed.
    So what ever time is picked I would say we need to set up at least a hour before just to give us time to be ready.
    please let me know what ya'll think.
    Thanks !

  7. Thats too funny our local Poultry Swap in Augusta County, Virginia is like every 3rd Sat. of each month and we do it from 7-noonish. On warm days it is busy at 7am to.

    So how many venders you all have show up to this event you all are having? Its a bit of a drive from where I am.

    Yeah, Tonya. The farm community and yard sale types are up at the crack a dawn. Our first swap was 10-2 and it was a DISASTER. Buyers were there before the sellers and it was rushed and we were out of birds in a half hour. I would probably like to do 7-noon but, people will just be there at 6 [​IMG] I think advertising it from 8-12 and then us getting there around 7-7:30 is key.

    I will work on the blog this weekend when I get some time then do my mass email in March. I will also do the flyer as I enjoy doing them.. But, it anyone would like to do one as well.. that's fine too. Feed stores, gas stations, grocery stores, banks, etc. can all get posted.

    Kat, I may chat with you and see how intense NPIP is in MD... [​IMG]

    Im excited... if for anything, wer'e thinking about something that'll be happening in the SPRING [​IMG]

    I'm fine with the old time. I was just thinking of the ones that drive so far. As they were not to fond of the times.
    Maybe we should make it longer ~ keep the 8am-1 or 2 pm.
    That is of course if it goes like last time.
    There was what close to 20 venders last time Erin??
    It has been getting bigger every time.
    We would love to have new people as buyers or sellers.
    Erin would love to have you back just would not be the same with out you.
    I will have this year for sale~
    Blue Wyandotte
    100% Splash Blue Laced Red Wyandotte
    Wheaten Marans
    Olive Egg Layers
    A pair of Barber lines SplashBlue Laced Red Wyandottes
    Trio or pair of Blue Copper Marans
    If laying by April ~
    Blue Laced Red Wyandotte
    Also if I do the egg Swap .....
    What ever I hatch of those. I am going to have JG's so what ever I don't need of those too.
    Can you tell I love my new incubator??? [​IMG]
