So, how would you like to see some 6,000 plus birds in one place?  I know!  It seems cray, cray ,but at the Ohio National’s Poultry show that’s what was there… some 6,000 birds!  It was really just something walking up and down the rows looking at the various types of birds on exhibit.  From bantams to Turkeys, this show had it all.

The Ohio National is one of the largest shows in the United States. It offers hundreds of awards to be given the a variety of winners in including “Best in Show” and a number of other awards.  From ribbons, plates, plaques, trophies to golden cups, the awards were on display for all to see and many to desire.

The Open, held in the Expo area is held every year in the late fall . It’s slated such that anyone following show rules can participate. Certainly that’s why there were so many birds on exhibit.

Judges walk the rows holding every single bird until the entire show of animals have been seen, held and considered for quality.  The entire show lasts only a Saturday with awards given out on Sunday.

Fun times.
