The mornings and evenings are getting cooler these days. It is the time of year when many of us start giving that last look at what birds we plan to keep for the winter and those we can still let go.
Jeremy Ludyka, Randy Angevine, and I recently had a great trip together. We travelled to New York and took in a show. The folks who operate the Rochester Poultry Association show were a wonderful group of the nicest people. They were helpful in so many ways. Yes, we did show as well. It was a show of just over 600 and we held our own very well (see results in “Notes of Interest”). We met and chatted with a number of fanciers who were in attendance.
On the trip, we also had the opportunity to visit a couple of fanciers in the state and look at their birds and set-ups. It was a few tiring days, but well worth it.
