I went to our very small rural county fair today and was not happy by what I saw in the chicken area. There were about 30 chickens, most of which I would say from reading on the web and seeing pics here were pretty poor examples of breed. There was but one turkey and one peacock. I noticed one of the bantum hens eating her own egg, and could not find a single person who cared. It was "well they do that" and then they ignored me. Farther down I found a hen with no water trying to get a drink from the dampness, it was warm enough that most of the chickens were panting. When I tried again to get help I was finally given a bucket to get rid of me and pointed out of the building to go get water, there was none available in this building! I got her some water and checked all the others. The very pretty BO roo was hiding his head under his wing trying to make the whole screeming kid thing go away. I don't see the point, and I don't think I will go back next year. So sad.
