Learn how to attend a poultry show!

Learn how to attend a poultry show!
by Melissa Caughey from Tilly's Nest

Have you ever attended a poultry show? Chickens too have their very own shows and they are great fun to attend. They happen all over the country and vary on scale. This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending the Northeastern Poultry Congress. This is the largest annual show for our area and it features chickens, geese, ducks, and pigeons. You can learn many things from attending the shows and even gain some insight into the professional world of chicken keeping. It is truly a family event as well. Feel free to bring the kids because there are kids like them at the show, showing their own chickens in the junior category.
