    The "Big E" is the Eastern States Exposition in Springfield, Mass. - now you know why we call it The Big E! It's a huge fairground that hosts the annual country fair - biggest around - and also hosts other events throughout the year. My sweetie and I are planning to go there in January for a huge model train show. As for what they do with the chicks, our local fairs sell them at the following Poultry Swap. They probably have chicken farmers that take them off their hands, too - all humane practices. We got a "fair" chick one year at a swap for 50 cents and she was the best hen we've ever had!
