 Miss America chicken...


"Crowns" for a pretty chick!


Isn't she lovely?


What a beautiful blond.

Some of the competition wasn't quite so lovely...

My what long legs you have!  That's not much of a drum stick!


"Modern Game - Birchen - Modern Game Bantam - Cock"

Having a bad (or good?) feather day?


"Bearded Polish"

And some...well...ahhhh...



"Naked Neck"

And could these goof balls be cousins?


Nah... they are Guinea Fowl.

There were other poultry being shown too.


Brown Call Duck


Duck, duck, GOOSE!



Have no idea what sort of pigeons these are.  If you want to see some strange looking birds, just Google "fancy pigeons".






I couldn't resist taking a few shots of the beautiful feathers.

Amazing, yes?
