Lesson 1502 – More Chicken Photos from the Northeastern Poultry Congress

Here are a few more photos from the Northeastern Poultry Congress. As you can tell, I’m rather intrigued with close-ups.

My friend, Lauren Scheuer, was there with these delightful *handmade* “Lucy’s”  Read her book Once Upon a Flock to discover who Lucy is.  I now have my very own Lucy sitting on the mantle.

Lesson 1501 – Chicken Photos from the Northeastern Poultry Congress

 

Things have been busy lately, but I wanted to share some photos I took from the Northeastern Poultry Congress – which is essentially the Northeastern Westminster Dog show of chickens.

If you’ve never been to a poultry show, do yourself a favor and check one out. You’ll you be amazed at all the different breeds, you’ll learn things about chickens, and you might even bump into a friend or two.

The birds are kept in small cages during the show (which typically lasts a weekend.) They are viewed, judged, and winners are chosen.

Although it’s easy to feel sorry for birds in stark cages, here’s the good thing about that situation – as anyone who has tried to take photos of chickens knows, it can be near impossible – chickens are constantly moving – when they are in a tight place, you’ve got a better chance for photos.

Here are some of mine from the weekend.
