Coyote Creek Farm Spring Fling & Chicken Thing!
Coyote Creek Organic Feed Mill
13817 Klaus Lane, Elgin, TX
We'll get a tour of the mill and learn the rigors that are involved in making a USDA Certified Organic Feed. We'll also get to see all that goes into producing 100% organic pasture raised soy free eggs. Every single ingredient in their feed is organic and non-GMO, and is tested regularly to ensure that. Bring your questions and come enjoy a fun time on the farm! We'll have a potluck picnic and plenty of time for questions and plain ole chicken chatting, so be sure to mark down a dish if you can bring one!

Brazos Valley Poultry Club Trade Days

If you're looking to buy chickens and chicken things in springtime, this is the place to be! Bring some empty cages and shop early for the best selections.
If you want to sell poultry, you can rent a table/site for $20, advanced reservations, or $25 the day of the event. Check in 7:00 am – 8:00 am. Sell 8:00 am - 4:00 pm. All poultry vendors must have current PT papers and TAHC sales permit. There will be a concessions stand with a BBQ lunch available for purchase.

Sat May 05, 1:00 PM
Brazos Valley Poultry Club Summer Lawn Show
2970 Spanish Oaks, Brenham, TX
The Lawn Show is a great way to learn what to expect and how to get started exhibiting poultry. We'd like you to "enter" a few birds so we can have them critiqued and answer some questions. We'll have an APA/ABA judge on hand, and it will be handled like a real show, so be sure to bring your P/T papers! But its not a sanctioned show, so you can relax and enjoy the learning.
The show will be limited to 100 birds, and there will be some simple awards for the voted winners. This is a great way to learn step one of exhibition poultry and have easy access to an APA/ABA judge to answer all of your questions, and some of the top breeders in the region. Bring your chickens, and bring a friend and their chickens, and bring some potluck to share! We hope you'll come and enjoy the great time over a Lawn Show full of beautiful chickens!!
