    This year my 4-H group decided to do something different and asked us to put our chickens into costumes for a costume class.
    Nobody had ever dressed up a chicken or even knew how to that I knew of so it was quite a challenge to figure something out but we eventually came up with something. Has anyone else ever dressed up a chicken? [​IMG]

    It's a group for kids ages 7-21 where you join projects such as Poultry (which I do), Beef(cattle, which I also do), Dairy, Goat, Horse, Rabbit, Cooking, etc. there's like 100 different projects. Anyway, you would work with your animals or your project for a year. For the animal projects you'd learn how to take care of them, how to show them and how to enter them into fairs and competitions. It gives you all sorts of opportunities for travelling across the country for conference meetings and exchange programs. It's not a very good discription sorry. I'm pretty sure that there are clubs all over the world but mostly just in The USA and Canada.

    Hello, my name is Rapunzel. Excuse me sir, I know you mean nothing by it, but your hairy hands under my skirt are interfering with the whole fairy tale effect.

    Sorry, I couldn't help but put a caption to your cute photo because I am a little bit addicted to the caption thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/714104/what-is-this-chicken-thinking

    All these costume photos would get some pretty funny captions on that thread if you all want to post them there, too ; )

    Haha! I had to explain to many people she was rapunzel. You should have heard her telling us off after that was taken.
