State Fair Chickens

In my last post I told you about the young boys who showed us around the barn and told us about the chickens they were taking to the State Fair.  Here's a look at their unusual breeds.   Maybe some of you can help me out with their names.

King of the Roost



This one looks a little mean.



I liked this little fuzzy guy.



Bad hair feather day!





The end!

Thanks for stopping!  Have a great day

Until next time

Maybe an example of nature's sense of humor while at the same time, when you look closely there is beauty. I can't help but think that some clothes designers have copied some of these looks. Super shots that I enJOYed!

Renae said...

Hilarious chickens and captions. Why are chickens so dang cute and yet nearly frightening, esp when they decide to run at you? lol

Liz @ Sit With Me In My Garden said...

Oh they are so fun and interesting to look at! Our neighbors had a bunch of chickens that would roam over to our yard. I got a big kick out of it. I never knew there were so many different kinds!
