Ameraucana Marketplace / Steel mesh hardware cloth for brooders
« Last post by John W Blehm on October 19, 2018, 04:11:58 PM »
I bought a new 48" roll of Galvanized Hardware Cloth/Steel Mesh to build brooders years ago.  This is Special "3 holes per inch mesh" and works great for bantam chicks for up to a few weeks and large fowl for the first week.  Most hardware cloth is either 2 or 4 holes per inch either too big for bantams or too small for most droppings.  I don't know how many feet are left on this roll, but I'll offer it for $20 to a member that would like to pick it up at Fowl Fest.

Yes please can you send me photos. The curiosity is killing me lol

Would him being vaccinated affect my birds? I dont Have a problem with pox over here.

Vaccinations for these diseases does not make them carriers, so no, no problem.   Getting ready for the national Chantecler National in Indiana this weekend, but I'll try to get some photos early next week.

Nothing like waiting to the last minute, just put my entry in of 12 in the mail box. Trying to keep it small and figure I will just pack winners this time. I will say it is amazing what a month does when birds are not quit finished. Talked to Jeff Vance and it looks like they will be making the drive up so it should be another amazing show. If my daughter qualifies for the cross country State meet I may be in trouble. It will be held on the 4th of November at MIS speedway. So I may be putting some miles on between cooping in, making the meet Saturday morning then running back to the show Saturday afternoon. Thatís when you know you have crossed the line of becoming a professional chicken junky lol. Well I hope everyone has safe travels and looking forward to another opportunity to hang out and talk chicken with like minded people.

Mike hurricane season runs from June 1st to November 30th, though it is not unheard of to have a tropical system out of season. Historically September and October have been the most active months.

I think the amount of buildings is a non-starter.  I don't think that's a large enough issue to make a difference in choice of venues if all the other requirements are filled.  More important is diverse locations to get more Breed & Group Awareness and whatever problems may have been in Portage being spread out, it fulfilled those two necessities. Sue NePA

I really didn't notice any problems at Portage.   Our club table could have been in the building where the vendors, restrooms, food and seating was, but we could not have had the silent auction of birds in there, as that is where people go to get away from the dust and the noise to talk and to eat.  Our table was in the front part of the youth building right by the open entry door, and we had lots of traffic there.    As far as multiple buildings, that is very common at county fairgrounds.
