More fun with the poultry project

Today was the poultry project!  We learned about chicken showmanship (slightly different from the rabbit kind!).  It was fun!  I got to hold a Phoenix, a Polish and a Silkie.
  I love 4-H!

  3. I wouldn't be able to stop petting them, either! They're a really neat breed!

  4. I am new to your blog and love finding another person that loves chickens.

    I have 89 birds outside, but inside I am raising 2 silkies(1 blue, 1 white) and 3 mottled cochins that are less then 1 week old.

    Once you get into showing you find it very addictive. I have a best of Breed for a d'Uccle and a list of awards for a Standard Cochin Hen.
