Friday: Chill OUT & Check IN. A relaxed way to start the weekend by checking in your birds and getting comfortable starting at noon on Friday. Doors are open to all. This is also a good chance to look at the early birds without the crowds of people. The judging does not start until Saturday so it’s a relaxed atmosphere. While the show does not start officially until Saturday most vendors will be in place and some sale birds will be in the for sale area.
