    I went to the show in Bakersfield yesterday with my family. It was my first show and well worth it. I saw some first class examples of the birds I've been raising and learned a whole lot from the breeders. Highlights were meeting a guy who claimed his grandfather developed the original white cornish in the late 1800s, talking to judges about my favorite breeds, and meeting the author Christine Heinrichs (chicken journalist author of How To Raise Chickens: Everything You Need to Know) and her Husband. Everybody was more than happy to share information with a young novice like myself. Looking forward to the Victorville show. People in Bakersfield told me it will be like 3x as big. Great!
