Gaddy’s first ever annual Crazy Chicken Day is just around the corner. Mark your calendar for Saturday, March 3rd from 1-3pm, then tell all your crazy chicken friends. You don’t want to miss the inaugural event. Here’s what is planned . . . so far:
-Rob Cunningham from Coyote Creek Organic farm will deliver two free classes. From 1-2pm, he’ll talk about what you need to know to raise laying hens from newly hatched chicks. Then from 2-3pm, Rob will cover topics related to established flock management. (Bring a folding chair for this event, if you don’t want to stand.)
-With super short notice, the Immanuel Lutheran Youth Group agreed to take their Chicken Poop Bingo game on the road and will hold three games during the event. One game will be before Rob’s 1pm talk, the second will be before Rob’s 2pm talk, and the third will be after Rob’s talk–a bit after 3pm. (We’re going to be pretty fluid on the times.) Bingo tickets are $10 each and all proceeds will go to the group’s mission trip to Puerto Rico. I still have donations coming in, but so far the prizes are pretty awesome. Prizes will be available for viewing at Gaddy’s starting March 1st.
–Saori Weaving demonstration by Sarah Gaddy Dauro. Sarah, my talented sister-in-law, owns a Saori Weaving Studio in Belton. If you’ve ever wanted to try your hand a weaving or even if you’d just like to spend a relaxing day creating, I encourage you to take a class. I did and it was like fiber therapy–plus at the end of the day you have a beautiful piece of fabric.
-A representative from Zignature pet food will be here with coupons and free samples.
-T-Shirt door prizes from Gaddy’s.
-Posters, hats, shirts door prizes from Ideal Poultry.
-Chicks for sale (including some Bantums for this time).
-Sample some of Pflugerville’s best salsa from Beba’s Salsa
-I’ll have information available about Jessica from Reynolds Roost. Jessica raises Easter Eggers, Cream Legbars and a couple other breeds. Jessica also sells hatching eggs, but you might need to get on a waiting list for her specialty eggs.
