    All the chickens and guineas were sent home. The vet on hand took temps ranging from 106 - 110 on the chickens. 3 chickens were throwing up. 1 had to be put down. [​IMG] All of our chickens were ok and happy to be home. We were spraying them down and soaking them in a pool at fair to cool them down. The ducks and geese were able to stay, but just not farm fair without the chickens [​IMG]
