    I can't wait! On August 8th I'm gonna be bathing 8 chickens in our bathtub. I'll get some pictures of them then. Then on the 9th I'll be entering 'em. On the 10th I'll find out if they won any ribbons and money. [​IMG]

    When is ya'lls fair coming to town? I'm curious.

    that's what you do with your pretty, but OLD hens that barely to never lay, you take them to the county or state fair,, and show them,, you get what you can out of the old chickens, that aren't good layers, i got 5 dollars for a second place rooster one time, i am sure now they probably dont give you checks anymore, they probably give you certificates for a free meal at Cici's Pizza buffet
     
  7. Nope! I get money and ribbons. [​IMG]

    And for your information..................... (no offense meant) Marshmallow and her sister Blueberry are going on 6 years old (this August) and laying 4 to 7 times a week!! Pepper is 5 years old laying nicely and trying to go broody more times this year than she has in her entire life! [​IMG]
