On Saturday, I had to meet up with a friend of mine who agreed to transport my old flyball box to its new owner on the other side of the mountains. She had to be in town anyway, and when I heard what she was in town for, I had to go too. So Saturday afternoon, I headed straight from work over to the fairgrounds and the Chicken Swap.
There were a ton of chicks and even some ducklings there for sale.
I don't know a whole lot about chickens other than the basics. I know there are a ton of different breeds, though, and some of them are downright funny looking.

Most of them didn't seem to mind being in this huge building with a ton of people and other animals, but some of them did look a bit disgruntled by it all.

These two guys, though, were just hanging out on their person's shoulders, which was adorable.

There were also booths of chicken related stuff without any chickens as well, such as these awesome chicken signs.
|Beware of free range cock|
|Wicked chickens lay deviled eggs|
And some fleece too.
|Lots of pretty colors|
There were, of course, also geese there. I shared a photo of one goose yesterday (and no, that one didn't try to bite me, thankfully). I did get hissed at by one of the other geese though.

|And a bad attitude. Hissing geese are way scarier than you might expect|
|This guy was totally chill, though.|
And while I was told by people in the know that last year, the event was exclusively poultry and mostly all chickens, this year they had chickens, geese, ducks, rabbits, donkeys, and pigs. One booth even had a livestock guardian dog for sale.

Overall, it was a pretty entertaining day. It was so hard for me to not come home with the harlequin rabbit (above). Or any chickens. But, I managed to come home with nothing but pictures, and minus a flyball box.
