    Well, I went up to the chicken show up at Lake City today. I felt like I stepped back about 30 years. I pulled up to the Fairgrounds, and they have a smallish flea market. I moseyed around (bought some oranges, tomatoes, and onions)...thinking, geez, I dont even hear any chickens, I must be in the wrong place....when I heard a faint....er er er er ERRRRR......

    So I followed that sound to a long building, and boy did I hear chicken talk. I walked in the building....WOW!!!! rows after rows after rows of chickens, geese, ducks even some rabbits. I walked up and down the rows just gazing at all the different breeds. Seemed to be mostly bantys, but there were some gorgeous standards....a white Rock rooster that was bigger than my friends hound dog! Then I walked out back and everyone was selling chickens out of the backs of their vehicles. It was so great!!!! (no I didnt buy anything, Im not set up yet).

    The oddest chickens I saw were these tall skinny chickens (i forget their name, it was on their cage)....they almost looked like some teeny prehistoric chickens. Long long legs (skinny!) with a skinny body. Funny lookin!!

    Had a great day!

    It sounds like it would be a fun afternoon. I don't think I could be trusted though. I know I would become frenzied with want and I have to have it syndrome..lol

    i hope the Inverness one will be neat. I am planning on gong to that one. The lake city one I did not know about and could not get away this weekend to go to. They sound like a lot of fun and a new adventure.
