On Saturday June 2, my husband and I will be at the Badger Poultry Club's 43rd Annual Show at the Fairgrounds in Richland Center, Wisconsin. It's a one-day show, including bantams, waterfowl and guineas as well as large fowl. In this picture, poultry judge Butch Gunderson demonstrates how judges spread wing feathers to examine them, on a patient Buff Orpington pullet.
Poultry shows are great places to meet other fanciers, ask questions, share experiences and find stock. You may have birds of your own to share. Take a couple of hours off and visit this show if you are within shouting distance.
