Here is the website and directions for anyone interested. I may post some pictures and videos if I make it there. They'll be showing some beautiful birds, and many will be for sale.

God willing, I'm going, but I'm not taking any birds. Wish I'd make myself take some of the roosters I don't want, but not sure how grandson and I would handle trying to sell them, or give them away. We'd probably both cry. I'm not going to put us through that right now. Maybe another year.

Made it home with a splash showgirl and a blue silkie pullet. They are sweet and in the living room for the moment. They seem healthy.

Broke my camera before the show, so no pictures. This is par for my course.

They had some lovely Black Marans for sale. Gorgeous dark colored eggs. Maybe my loss, I don't know, but my Silkies have trouble getting along, so wasn't sure how they'd act together.

Also some English Buff Orpingtons sold right as I arrived. HUGE birds. Not that I needed them, just wanted them.

We finally have some cold weather here, but it is supposed to be back in the 60s by mid week. Extra warm weather for Nov and Dec. Last night it was down into the single digits.

I want Marans so bad but they are expensive. I'll have to settle for Welsummers.
