    Have you been to Frankenmuth before? There is TONS to see and do there, outside of Fowl Fest even. You should go there at least once in your life if you're a Michigander.

    I plan on going on Sat so I can watch the auction. I've never been but several people I know say that is it really nice. Plus when you're done looking at chickens you can go eat chicken at Zender's.

    Yes, Fowl Fest is definitely worth visiting. I'm lucky in that I'm only about 45 min. away so it is an easy trip. There are also sale pens there if you are interested. 2 years ago I bought a pretty trio of gold duckwing OEGB. It is fun to see different breeds of birds--kinda like a living catalog. Plus, as many have already pointed out, a day in Frankenmuth is always a terrific day.

    Is the Saturday auction the only day that they are sold?, or are there individual vendors as well?
