It’s hard to believe that it’s 2020 now. Hope everyone will have a happy and healthy year ahead. At this time I have 3 settings of eggs in the incubator. Of course all standards. I usually put lights on them November 1st. to get them in good production by mid December. Gotta get some ready for the fall shows. Will be setting bantams in February to get them ready also. Hope y’all will be getting birds hatched and ready for this fall.
This year the 2020 national will be in Norman Oklahoma (Nov. 7, Canadian Valley Poultry Club’s Mega Show) and my partner and me will be traveling there. We are showing under T&M Sumatras. It is 28 hours away for me but it’s a great show to attend.
