    My DH and I are really looking forward to the fair again this year. (We volunteer and have a blast talking with all of the ppl) We were thinking about entering one of our younger turkeys, and a few other things, but we are a little concerned about where the turkeys stay during the fair. They are housed in the same barn as the chickens...is this going to be a problem? If so, is there anything I can do to prevent it besides not bringing it there? Thank you in advance and as always, I look forward to your responses! [​IMG] I will put some pics on here in a few minutes. [​IMG] My second question is are these pics fair worthy? [​IMG] I just snapped them with the digital camera to show some of my city friends what these animals actually look like...well, aside from Bandit of course. lol! Thanks again! [​IMG]

    The turkey on the right is "Mr. Tom" the turkey we're thinking of entering, and also this may be one of the pictures I would like to enter.......let me know what you think.

    This is the chicks picture I was thinking of entering....[​IMG]

    The last picture is "Bandit" our red heeler and I was also thinking of entering this pic as well. [​IMG]

    Tom is a good lookin' fellow! Sure, why not enter him? Don't the folks who run these fairs take good care of the animals? I don't think I'd worry too much about hwo they house them. Good luck!
