    I noticed yesterday that most of the birds (chickens, ducks, and geese) were from the same few people. I kept seeing the same names over and over again. Is this how the farm show usually works? A few bring all of the birds?

    I think it just reflects how few people show in the area at the moment, and especially how even fewer can and are willing to show at the farm show. It's not easy for someone to leave their birds there for an entire week and make sure they are taken care of,,,, by themselves or make arrangements for someone to do it for them.

    Most poultry shows are just 2 or 3 days.

    And, I'm sure it's hard on the birds,,, an entire week of stress !

    Well, hope you all can bear with me while I do a little 'really cool moment' sharing...

    We put cameras in the coop, one for general population and one on 'broody watch'... we figured out the motion sensor and record setups and finally tonight got the video I've been wanting to capture. Gracie doing her own broody hen temp and humidity control.

    Watch her do her 'broody shuffle' at the end of the video... [​IMG]


    this could be dangerous... I actually broke down and got a youtube account so I could post this video! I'm doomed!!! [​IMG]
