Snapshots: Poultry Rule at Ohio Nationals

By Teresa Woodard

No where is the growing trend of poultry keeping more evident than this weekend’s Ohio Poultry National at the Ohio State Fairgrounds in Columbus.  Here, hundreds of chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys, guineas and partridge arrive from across the country to compete for best of show.  You’ll find heritage varieties, fancy ones with crested plumes and feathered feet, large turkeys and small bantam ducks, and even pink silkie chickens.  Below are a few favorite snapshots from the event which wraps up today.

Narragansett turkeys are known for being one of the largest of the heritage turkeys.
