Wanted to extend an invitation to all fellow poultry enthusiasts, anyone in the area that would like to join we'd love to have ya! Large poultry swap with attendees coming from NC, SC, TN, VA and who knows where else! Concessions on site, LOTS of raffles and much more.

Open to all poultry and waterfowl as well as everything related for the coop to the house.

I just wanted to give everyone an update on our second Carolina Chickenstock. It was a great turnout!!! We had approx 65 vendors and if we had to guess at least 500 people in/out thru out the day shopping. We raised almost $450 for the 4H Poultry Program. The 4H kids had a good time and would like to come back this fall to participate as vendors themselves. We also handed out 10% off coupons to a local Tractor Supply that had almost $3000 in additional sales that afternoon from the coupons. We will do this again come fall, all are looking forward to it.
I want to thank Christina again for the egg donation, Carl Beard is one lucky man!

Hello all, hope everyone has had a wonderful summer. It is that time of year again when everyone is gearing for show season and culling thru who stays and who goes. This coming weekend Sept.22nd is our third Carolina Chickenstock, weather is going to nice at 80 degrees and we are hoping for the best turnout yet!
This event is special for a couple of reasons, 1) I will be promoting The United Orpington as much as possible with a banner and additional information in regards to the breed and club. 2) After discussing with Don & others the UOC has agreed to start a Youth Program . This event all raffle proceeds will go to start that program. The goal is that these funds will pay all new junior membership fees as well as go toward awards/prizes at poultry shows and who knows where this program will grow!! (details to be worked out in the near future)
We have some very nice items being donated to the raffle from indiviuals and bussinesses alike. Donations from Belle farm, Brinsea, Adozengirlz, EdiblePrintables, Tractor Supply, Duan Farm Supply and much more!!
