4-H Community Fair

Our neighboring county, like many, was once pretty rural. But now, the eastern half has almost entirely lost its farming base. The county fair has lost most of its visitors and last year only had attendance of 6,500 over an entire week. The local 4-H groups decided something must be done. So they moved to the more rural western part of the county and started their own 4-H Community Fair.

To support this idea, I took my kids on Sunday and enjoyed seeing all the wonderful 4-H projects. I especially liked seeing the interesting varieties of chickens and seeing all the work the kids have put into their chicken-keeping.

Take a look below at a few of the chickens I photographed. And don't forget to stay tuned, there's more to come.....

Black Orpington Cockerel - He's so big, he almost doesn't fit in the cage!
Frizzle hens - A type of chicken with feathers that curl outwards, instead of laying flat.  

White Crested Black Polish Cockerel - A calm backyard companion although their eyesight is limited by their top feathers.
