Went to the Oklahoma Arkansas state fair just to see the chickens. As we done last year and was late seeing a lot last time . This year we went at the right time all the birds had been judged and was still there. WOW wee at the size of the show birds I cant get over how some of them are so big and I mean big. The bantam birds are as expected at the size I've seen for years. But the large breed birds are way bigger than any I've ever seen in a back yard flock. The only birds that was the same size as my birds was the cinnamon queens. The barred rock hen made my hens look like a young pullets. And wow the Blue Andalusian Rooster looked like he was 2 1/2 ft tall what legs he had, the hen was the same. How are the show birds grown so big? I've seen pictures of lots of the birds you all have and I think are just as nice and nicer than most of them. The best bird I seen was a partridge rock hen she was stunning. She won grand champion.
