Hi well it is fall and the show circuit for the touchwood birds is in full swing. It has been awesome. Cody won BB and RB silkie at the Belvidere show with his white hens...Buttons and Kesha....Buttons went on to be the JR Champion Featherleg...it was a great show with some very lovely silkies in the JRs.
At the Wisconsin International he had to return the travel trophy for the JR Show Champion. Cody was a bit down about it as it truly is a spectacular piece. Well he went BB silkie with a white pullet SILK and RB with a black hen Paparrazzi...Silk went on to capture JR Champ Featherleg..Jr Champ Bantam and then she won Cody the big trophy so he got to bring it home. and be JR Show Champion of the WI INternational again. Silk a homebred showed exceptionally well parading and posing all day for everyone who looked her wayand she defeated the many excellent Jr birds...chickens..pigeons..turkeys and waterfowl.
So now we are waiting for the Eastern silkie nationals and the Ohio nationals. We want to thank all our many friends for helping us out and especially Laura and Connie who have given us the opportunity to purchase fine bloodstock to create the lovely birds. We have met many new faces and want to thank the buyers who have purchased the few finished birds we make available in the fall. We still have a few white boys and some blacks who are finishing out and should be ready to sell by Ohio Nationals if anyone is interested. We are planning on raising a few whites and buffs over the winter so we can supply more people with some of these nice birds.
Hope you are all enjoying the better weather that fall brings and if you see us at a show dont be shy and introduce yourself. We love to talk chicken!!...Chris and Cody aka the Chicken Baron of Touchwood Silkies...
