It was at the Ex that I fell in love with Buff Orpingtons.
These chickens were massive.
You can enter all sorts of stuff in the various contests they have. There are a lot of categories and even more subcategories. Anyone do flower arrangements in teacups? They have a contest for that. I'd like to enter chickens but it's required that your entire flock be vaccinated which is not something I'm willing to do. The Ex is a good place to do a little window shopping for animals. Cattle and horses dominate but you can find poultry, goats, sheep and rabbits as well.
In addition to the animals on display they also have a bunch of midway rides and games and an arena showcasing various events such as oxen parades, sheep rodeos and lots of horse stuff.
Limey wants to go again this year but I'm not feeling like spending the cash. Maybe they will trade us tickets for one of our frozen chickens?
Anyone going to the Ex this year? What day do you think is best to go?
