    Is anyone on here going to the Iowa State Fair? I don't know if they do more than a 4-H chicken show, but there is going to be a chicken "washing" contest I think I will have to observe...

    I live right in Des Moines - so it isn't a big deal for me to go [​IMG]. I didn't have chickens this time last year - so now I have a new really exciting reason to go.

    I looked at your site - I think your dogs are just ADORABLE! We just got a two year old Bichon that had been rehomed. He needs fixed and taught a few manners but I think he will be a good dog. Let me know next time you're down in DSM. You can bring me some faverolle eggs... once they start laying that is [​IMG].

    Lets see DM shows are in Feb and Sept. Too bad they weren't laying yet I would have some next month for ya. Hope this humidity passes by soon yuck. Will probably be going down to Waverly swap may have a few birds for sale the ones I am not keeping for breeding or eating.
    hope Greene still has the chicken processing place still I don't want to do it.

    See I learned something new today! I had no idea there was a show in September! I only got into chickens because I hatched some in the preschool where I worked and kept a couple. My husband and I had always talked about having some eventually. He calls me the crazy chicken lady now - but I see him out there sweet talking to the chickens also.
