    I didn't want to hijack the thread on the 1870's poultry book,so I started a new one. Does anyone have any old poultry pics they can share? Maybe know of any good websites? I am always searching antique/flea markets and have found some good pics for my walls. My great aunt was a poultry farmer,sure wish she was around now ,sure could learn alot from her!!

    Here is the only vintage poultry related thing I have. It is a pic of my Great Grandmother and my Grandmother feeding the chickens. I just adore this pic. Now that I finally dug it out and scanned it, I am going to print a copy for my kitchen. [​IMG]

    Texas.......around the Waco area. I just adore old pics, but until you mentioned it, never thought of looking for vintage chicken pics to decorate. I do believe hanging this will start an absoltue addiction!!! I will have to hound my family to see if they have any more. [​IMG]

    I'll bet that pic would look great in a cool antique-looking-type frame![​IMG]

    Yes, that would be just awesome. I like to use old (VERY old) windows as picture frames. The right ones look soooooooo cool. Haven't done any in quite awhile, though.
