I went to the local county fair tonight and holy cow am I a chicken snob! some of the first prize winners were NASTY!... They had lifted scales, no toes, overgrown nails and some eyes looked a little swollen.. Even my 8yr old daughter picked up on these things. The first place winning polish was special all right... head was cocked and was walking in circles. everyone was laughing that she was "chasing her tail like a dog" one of the 3rd place winners, her head was picked almost bald I was trying to get pictures but the battery on my blackberry died...i think next year we will enter some of ours in the show and see how we make out..
