We'll I'm back from the State Fair.... at least for the evening. It was SUCH a long day, and as my luck would have it, it was also Texas vs. OU weekend, so it was a complete madhouse. For those of you that dont know, Texas vs. OU (Oklahoma University) is THE college football game of the year here. People loose all self control when it comes to this game, and everyone goes completely NUTS! In any event, judging is over, and the awards will be announced tomorrow at 1pm. I have tenatively gotten 4 Best of Varieties with my Black, Blue, Buff, and Buff Showgirl. Of course nothing is final until awards are announced. I think we stood in the isle for HOURS talking to HUNDREDS of people about the Silkie breed. People are absolutely FACSINATED with this breed. Myself and another friend of mine each grabbed a bird, and held it while people passed by and asked us questions and petted the birds. It was really funny because we got the usual questions like "Is it a chicken or a rabbit?" "Does it lay regular eggs?" "Does it make noise like a chicken?" "Why does it have fur and not feathers?" So all in all it was a very informative day, at least for the general public. We were able to educate and inform SO MANY people, so it was really reallly fun. I'll post pictures tomorow. For now I am going to bed because I am EXHAUSTED!!! And I've got to be back there at 7am tomorrow morning.
