Mr. Chicken Chick and I attended The Northeastern Poultry Congress this weekend and had a BLAST! I’ll be sharing photos from it later this week when I get a chance to catch my breath. Between the poultry show, trying to keep the flock safe in the sub-zero temperatures and snow we’ve been suffering through and writing a few magazine articles, it’s been crazy busy, but I promise I will share photos of some amazing chickens and other fancy poultry I visited at the show.
It was fabulous to meet so many of my peeps from so many different states who traveled to Massachusetts in a blizzard to get there!
Spartacus, feeling big. (he’s a cross between a Red Sex Link pullet and a Serama cockerel)
Kate, my Speckled Sussex with a Black Copper Marans behind her.
This is Bertha, she’s one of the three new birds we purchased at the poultry show this weekend.
She’s a large fowl Partridge Cochin and she is HUGE!
Mr. Chicken Chick chose these two Bantam Dark Cornish pullets at the poultry show. Since he named Bertha, I named these two Thelma & Louise. Louise already escaped once inside the house. I’m going to have to keep a close eye on this pair lest they live up to their names.
Sparky, Black Copper Marans rooster.
More snow. At least it’s pretty if not inconvenient.
Thanks for joining me and have a great week!
