Well, I have had enough of State Fair for the year. I spent most of the last two days there, though I didn't really spend much time at the poultry show area other than today during judging. It's pretty different than a "real" show, it's full of the general public and severely lacking in exhibitors. But for some odd reason I really enjoy the fair. It's a fascinating place to people-watch.
I didn't count how many birds were there. I know about 80 were entered and not all showed up, so maybe 60? That's a VERY small show. I didn't win. I got Reserve Champion Bantam with "Luna" (Black Rosecomb hen). Best Bantam was a nice Black Silkie, and in fact it also won Best in Show. Reserve of Show was a White Runner Duck.
Not much exciting to report. No pictures from the fair. :-( I haven't touched the drawings since Thursday, I'll delve back into those tomorrow. I also plan to start working Dusty tomorrow morning. They are all getting along, though Gwen still runs him off when he gets too cozy.
I'm taking about a gazillion birds to auction tomorrow morning. I don't even know how many, guess I'll find out tomorrow! That'll be nice to get rid of them. I REALLY need to get the cockerels into the conditioning coops. As it stands now I can probably count on one hand the number of show-quality males I'm going to end up with (simply because of condition). Things got out of hand this year.
