Thoughts on chickens at the fair - Page 4

post #31 of 37
Wow.
I guess I got lucky.
Heartwood festival fair in va was amazingly aware of all entered.
Every bird or bunny had water and treats. I even overheard at sign in birds rejected because of mites, the judges would not let any sick bird near the healthy ones. Those judges where on top of their game! I felt safe, nice&cool in the shade&never worried about my hens. Children where corrected THE moment any nasty little fingers came close to a cage. Guess I didn't realize how fourtunate we where? Sorry to those of you who had a tuff experience.

@pipAchick ...realize that this thread is 9 years old.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."

Well, just look at dates on all posts in threads......sometimes old threads come up and discussion is continued for a good reason.

Older information may still be valid and worth reading.....or not.

They no longer have poultry at our county fair. Large displays with photos and such but no live birds. I have to say I was relieved and impressed.


Edited to say oops....no dates are showing on my app.

Caught a case of Secretary Butt, quit work and decided to raise chickens as physical therapy. Can I write that off as a medical expense?
