This past weekend I attended the Northeastern Poultry Congress. If you haven’t ever gone to one, please consider doing so, these things are like the Westminster Dog shows of poultry.
The variety of poultry was astounding and much like a kid in a candy store I was able to pick out my shortlist of the breeds I want added to my flock this Spring (Silver Phoenix, Salmon Flavorelle, and (of course) another Maran or two 🙂 )
As anyone who has tried to take photos of chickens know, they move their heads so much that often it’s difficult to get anything other than a blur, which is why I was so pleased to get some really good photos that show the diversity in some of these chickens. For your entertainment, I present – chicken faces.
Tomorrow I’ll share some pictures of chicken feather patterns that will take your breath away.

Also, join me on Facebook to find out more about the flock (children and chickens) and see some pretty funny chicken jokes, photos of tiny houses, and even a recipe or two.
