I gave up showing a few years ago when i got crook it took to much to get it all done Beverley is about 3 hours away from me but i have a mate that lives in town and we catch up two or three times a year Trev
Went to the Beverley Show on Saturday. Quite an impressive show for a little country town. Much better than last year's York show. The poultry show was quite disappointing though. Not many birds and of those shown, a few had scaley leg mites. But we enjoyed the day. The wife liked the black cattle on show. The black shiny coats were beautiful. She also liked the little piglet in the petting zoo. The kids just wanted bags and games at the sideshow section. Some sheep on show though we all agreed that they were not as big as our ram. I think we are biased of course.
Hi cannakid i bet they will not have leg mite on them [ Good luck } Kellerberrin Show is on the 21st of September that used to be great but with the new sports centre i have no idea where they will put the chooks it will be interesting to see if i make it that is Trev
Chooky I have a mate that was working with the Shire horses she did not make it to the chook house i will let her know that she did not miss anything thanks for the feedback we do need a lot more folk in the bush all the oldies in Perth with time on there hands should make a move and a few would start up small businesses in the towns as well we had a Plumber move in he cleaned up we did not have one he wanted to retire ?? no chance Trev
I enjoy the country town shows. It is less crowded and you get to have a good look at things, unlike the Perth Royal Show. My one complain is there should be more food outlets at the show. The line was so long just to order food followed by the wait for the order to be ready.
Agree that more people should move to the smaller towns. We have only had our place in York for 3+ years. During this time a few businesses have closed. Very sad. Being only about an hour from Perth more should be done to attract the Perth people to drop in for day trips or weekend stayover.
I am hoping to put in blue and black australorp cockerels and a black australorp pullet and maybe my Plymouth Rock hen , I was think of the gold laced wyandottes but there pen is extremely muddy and I didn't get my training pens made. Plus I only can transport 5 till I get more carry boxes. Oh and my RIR's

Looks like you'll be busy washing them the next couple days. I saw training pens built out of a bookcase. This was secured onto a trailer to transport the birds. There must have been at least 20 birds all up. There were two bookcases. A tarp was used to cover the wire front to limit the airflow on the road.
All my birds are covered in mud. I'll have to get them some dry sand to dust bath in to clean themselves up.
I haven't got them in a breeding pen I only got 1 pullet out last year I need to breed a replacement boy he is a big nasty but was a night boxed boy till I brought him up from Perth the hen comes from D in Gero I have run out of breeding pens I got marans in 1 australorps in another blue faverals in another I got goergie blue australorp in with my newhampshires and barnevelders in a new shiftable pen and gold lace wyandottes in my last pen the other pens have all mixed breeds
Thanks for that good luck i have just expanded my pens again after giving some away to a young starter back up to 10 again only one mixed pen thats the meat birds Indian Game with Buff Susses RIR Speckled Sussex and a couple of crosses all the others in there own pens with there own Roos I need to improve them it will be a few years to do that Trev
