If I called this a "PEEP" show...would ya laugh? (PA farm show time!)

Hey everyone! It's time for the 2012 PA Farm show live chick hatching cam!

IT'S A FREE PEEP SHOW!!!

(I know...it's supposed to be a family blog...sorry!)

Here is a good youtube of a chick hatching...just FYI


Farm show runs through Saturday...so the link should be good at least that long (I would guess!)  Leave the window open for a while...you can watch the eggs hatch!

You can also watch the DUCKLING SLIDE show  HERE...at 11a, 2p and 6p daily

There is a lot of free educational content at the PA farm show website

FOUND HERE

If you get the chance to visit the Pennsylvania Farm show in person, though...we highly recommend it!

My kids are fond of all of the goofy varieties of chickens...every year they marvel at how some of those "SHEEPDOG" chicken breeds can see!  (some of these suckers are really LOUD!!!)

They are equally fond of all of the varieties of ice cream!

(The waffle sundae at the beekeepers booth is a FABULOUS deal!)

The educational exhibits in the main hall are always interesting...and our friends Tucker and Gladys usually have something interesting on display somewhere from their farm!  (Locating it is kind of like our version of WHERE'S WALDO)

You can't turn around without running into a goat...pig...sheep...peacock...llama...reindeer...chicken...duck...turkey...workhorse...showhorse...or cow in this place.

A useful piece of FARM SHOW advice for noobs...

Wear old shoes, and watch your step!

:-)

While we are on the subject...also beware of the ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE (sauce samples)

 (Don't say I didn't warn ya! Come armed with a milkshake from the food court if you are going to brave this stuff!)
