It's not long to Easter now when we will be organising the exhibition in the poulty marquee at Carlton Towers. As well as poultry there will be some livestock & old tractors to see this year. If the weather is kind to us it will be a brilliant four days (actually, as hardened flyballers it will be brilliant whatever the weather - we'll never forget clearing the arena of snow on Easter Sunday!).
The rare breeds are starting to lay now, and the first eggs are being incubated to check on fertility. Victoria the Embden goose is doing a spot of incubating of her own, sitting on a clutch of eggs in the shed. The ducks continue to lay well.
