The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair 2008

I went to the Royal Winter Fair today and took some photos. In recent years I have become quite allergic to cows and horses, so I didn't photograph them, but I photographed this neat display of a horse skull.
I spent most of my time around the poultry. I gathered a lot of cast off feathers from them...and I'm sure people thought I was some sort of weirdo. But I find chickens and roosters to be so cute! And I LOVE their feathers.

These guys never shut up all day! They were even crowing through this morning's Rememberance Day service.

These two were trying to fight each other through their cages. I recorded it, but I'm having trouble uploading it onto Blogger right now.

Here's a turkey. They were displaying to each other and gobblin' all day!
I got some of THEIR feathers too!


I don't know the names of the breeds, I just admire their beautiful variations.


What cute little chickies, eh? They don't stay like that for long!

Here are the Roosters fighting:

And here's one crowing....which they do ALL day...not just at sunrise....

Hi Suzanne

I cannot got to the RWF because I'm allergic to hay!

I love going there but cannot last more than 5 minutes, and I'm sick for a week.

So thanks for posting the pics!!

I'll avoid the obvious "caged cocks" gag for lesser lights!!

I know! I was sick all that night with a severly stuffed up nose. It's just not fair.

I'll wait for Denis to write a "caged cocks" comment.....if he dares.
