Chickens had to have a bath. I guess it strips their feathers and then stimulates them to produce oil which will make them nice and shiny for the fair. They were not enjoying themselves.
"What are you guys doing?"
We had to be careful not to get the water in their faces so only dunked and swished from the neck down.
A soppy wet Goldie. She was not happy and proceeded to dust bathe after an hour long grooming session to get all her feathers back in place.
The carnival at the fair.

Best slide ever
Madeline's show chicken Little Bo Peep.
One of her other chickens won Reserve Champion
Another won Champion.
All dressed up for showing her chicken
All lined up for the judges.
On the last day Michael was stepped on by a cow. He is fine and I thank God. 1200 lb cow plus Michael's foot could have been a lot worse than the bruise he recieved.
