Markham Fair 4

Some of the handsome faces at Markham Fair. I should have made a note of the different breeds.

Who do you think you're staring at? 

"People who count their chickens before they are hatched act very wisely, because chickens run about so absurdly that it is impossible to count them accurately."   Oscar Wilde

“If I didn't start painting, I would have raised chickens.”  ― Grandma Moses

This one was "too chicken" to have her portrait taken so she fluffed up her feathers, turned her back, and gave me the evil chicken eye.


  1. Lovely photos. Greetings from Montreal. :)

  2. Love your series of photos from the Fair. It's always so interesting to me, as one of those city boys, to see all the various breeds of each animal. Until I do, I tend to think of each one as a sort of generic type; all one color, same fur or feathers, etc.

  3. Oh, these are GREAT! Sham....I love Chickens and to get such wonderful close-ups of these amazing Birds---well, you did yourself and the chickens, proud!!!

  4. Fun shots. Did you happen to see any of them cross the road? ;)

  5. Chickens are strange looking creatures, aren't they?

  6. Proof that chickens are actually handsome birds!

  7. Happy Thanksgiving, Shammie!! I love the camera shy chicken, but they all seem to have funny little attitudes.

    Yup, sorry, I've been a little absent in blogland. A mix between busy and lazy.We've been away the past 3 weekends and then when I'm home, I've been too lazy to upload photos to the blog. But we had an amazing fall adventure this weekend, so hoping to do a post later've inspired me to get back on it!

  8. That last chicken seems to be saying How rude!!
    Love it and the interesting faces you captured. I didn't make it to any Fairs this year. My camera is suffering withdrawals.
    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours today.

  9. Great pics! I like that you used an Oscar Wilde quote, too. He had very different values than I do, but I think I would still appreciate hanging around the man--just for his incredible wit.
