As I started to tell you yesterday, Debbie and I drove up to College Station to go to a Poultry Show. Neither of us had ever been to one before and weren't sure what to expect. For one thing, there was a lot more country flavor than we expected.
There were several raffles. One was for this handmade quilt.
..and there were over a thousand birds!
..and not just chickens, but unique and beautiful pigeons..
..geese and quite a few types of ducks too.
..but I do have to say that the real show was with the many different breeds and colors of chickens!
..and here are a few pictures of our farm hens.. Last year we purchased 6 chicks that were suppose to be 6 Barred Rock pullets. Turns out one of the six was a black sex link pullet.
..and the other 5 did turn out to be nice big Plymouth Barred Rock's that lay exceptional eggs!
..and here are the 2 new girls. They are Light Brahma pullets and will get larger than the Barred Rocks!
I just love the new little girls. They look like they have little ruffled panties on!
