Poultry Show & Swap Updates, October Issue #3
September 30, 2012

Welcome to the third issue of Poultry Show & Swap Updates. Thanks for your interest and support of our website. We hope to be a reliable and accurate resource for you. The website has continued to change and develop in the past month and I hope you have found the changes and additions helpful. We'll keep you posted as we add new pages and content.

Since last month, we've added some new pages:

We're going beyond the basics and have started a "Fancy 201" section on our website for the next level of poultry breeding and showing. If you have an area of expertise you'd like to submit an article, we'd love your help. Contact us! We have 3 new pages in the Fancy 201 since last month:

-Ship Your Hatching Eggs - A great step-by-step method of successfully shipping and mailing your hatching eggs so they get to their intended destination safely and intact.

-Coccidiosis - A great article on Cocci by our poultry health guru, Lisa Vaughn.

-Fowlpox - Another great health article by Lisa.

We've also added:

-Advertise With Us - Learn about advertising opportunities on our website. Our rates are low and we have several options. If you're a breeder, consider doing a very affordable featured advertisement on the breeder directory page. We're getting great traffic!

We had an article published in Backyard Poultry magazine and will also be published in The Poultry Magazine, next month. We will be attending the Southern Ohio show and will have a table. We will be having a Giveaway, so come say hello and consider becoming part of our breeder directory or becoming one of our advertisers.

We love hearing from you. Any comments or new information is welcome!

Your fellow fanciers,

Kevin, Valerie and Kara Miller
