Going to the Utah County Fair. It started today. I did not enter any birds, but I have a friend that has a few of my birds and entered them...the Pencil is one, and she said the Judge couldn't get over her. He said, this, is what people want to see when they are breeding these. Well, she had trimmed the wings, not knowing that would be a problem..? The little stink had been flying over the neighbors fence. And, another one that would have made the top whatever it is in bantams, but didn't because it wouldn't stand up. This little Silkie, is carried around the house like a pet cat by her son. Remember the story of her looking for her son, and found him down watching t.v. sharing cereal with this chicken? Waaay laid back. Would just lay back down when the judge wanted it to stand. He told her it would have made it to best, but he couldn't do it because of that. She has my Sussex. That girl made best in all of the chickens there. I don't know what they call of these things..I've never done this. I'm going to go look now. It didn't open until 4 this afternoon. He told her that she had some nice birds. She clipped the pencils wings, and the Delaware, which he or she, was also impressed with. That is the bird I would of thought would come out on top..she is just beautiful. She was getting into the neighbors yard along with the Pencil. No clipped wings in a show..makes sense.
