Troy.......so a Saturday one-day show..........can long-distance exhibitors coop-in Friday afternoon/evening? If yes, will someone have an eye on the birds overnight? Thanks, and great for the fancy poultry industry that people like you volunteer your expertise.

Breeder of the Buckeye has been a long hard road. But, I am starting to see my work pay off with a win of Best American, Champion Large Fowl with a 2018 pullet. Very excited to continue my work with SC RIR LF, Bantam White and Black Wyandotte, Bantam New Hampshires, Bantam Buckeyes, and Embden Geese.

Crystal lol... is that a WHAT thats a lot or WHAT thats a small show lol.... Our fair is quite different from most ... lots of great birds for a small local fair. The days of the stringmen showing 150-300 birds from one farm are pretty much done in this area. This 420 birds made up for mainly the top breeders in the area. Pretty cool.. in Reality a warm up to OPB. 420 birds by 39 exhibitors .
