    Last January there was a show in Stockton. I wonder if that is annual?
    Does anyone know if there are ever any shows at Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds in CA? I've been there, can't remember what month, and I did see chickens there.

    Here is the link to the fairgrounds, poultry show in september

    Antioch fairgrounds has a very small section of poultry on display. Maybe 10 chickens, and 30 turkeys. I wouldnt recomend it though, its kind of sad. Most of the turkeys are debeaked and have the tips of their toes amputated. I left in tears.

    Well most of the actual shows are now over for the year, they tend to be at the beginning of the year, and in the summer is mainly just fairs going on, as far as I know. I recommend going to an actual show, not a fair, though fairs are ok if you just want to see some chickens. But open shows, or even youth shows, are way different and better. Bigger, too.
