The Edible Garden Show 2014; A right Royal visit!

This weekend at The Edible Garden Show has been pretty awesome.
The show moved from Stoneleigh Park to Alexandra Palace this year so I went down to London on Thursday night to help set up our stand.
As usual we were running late so most of it was done on Friday morning but it all came together in the end!

HRH Prince Charles and Camilla visited the show on Friday morning and came over to the PoultryTalk stand to meet my Pekin Bantam chicks!
Charles was asking Jamie all about what we do, how long the chicks take to hatch and about the incubation process while Camilla held a chick and spoke to the school children on the stand.
She held a chick which she named with the school children; they decided on Rosie!

The rest of the weekend seemed to fly by!
We went out for dinner and spent most of the show networking and making new chicken friends!

I did a talk in The Experts Theatre on Sunday afternoon with Naomi from BHWT which went ok - I'd forgotten about it until half an hour before we did it so it was all quite rushed but a Q&A session at the end helped to fill time!
