Chicken Eggzibit and
We were, as Abby would say, "Superdy Duperdy" busy this year with photos and
inquisitive people. You can really tell backyard flocks are becoming more popular.
Special thanks to Abby's new friends, y'all helped out a great deal.
Thanks Barry and the
Fitzgerald Jaycees for
inviting us back again!
Thank you to our sponsors. We love working at the Georgia Museum of
Agriculture. It gives us the opportunity to show off the "Agri" in
Agri-entertainment. Notice in the picture Abby is sitting with some children and
the benches are full of adults. The benches were a great help and we filled them
for every show! We love audience seating as much as the audience does.

Thanks to the fans that followed us to the Golden Corral at 7:00PM.
I learned a lot about sharing and patience at this event. We
served as hosts of the stage and I coined the phrase Poultry
Palace Entertainment Area because this is where all the
entertainment merged. We had two dance groups, one for the
young and the other for the young at heart; and a young singer
that was fairly new to the stage. I was most impressed with
Callihan Junction. They traveled all the way from Powder
Springs Georgia and humbly set up behind the stage to allow
the preceding performers room to do their show. Their music
and their actions showed their dedication to the Lord.
Who is Rod Dinwiddie? That's the really tall
guy posing with me and Fruit Punch, the
piano playing chicken. I had to stand on the
coop to get in the picture. I "Googled" him
and only found Rod on the Carrot Festival
website. My search results were better
when I used "Rob." It's a talent to be ten feet
tall and pose with a three foot girl. Hey Rob,
email me a link or something.
Last but not least the final performer of the day. We really enjoyed the
music of singer / songwriter Kris Pierce. His original songs were
inspiring and I was surprised on his voice variations on his cover
songs. Little Red liked his music too.
I also learned that carrots really are a refreshing snack. The Festival gave away 1 pound
bags of cool cut baby carrots. I munched on them as I watched Abby play in the Hampster
Water Balls and ride on the ponies. By the end of the day Abby and I ate the entire bag. All
in all the Echols County Carrot Festival was fun and we can see that this young festival has
a lot going for it in the future. Thank you for making us a part of this great event.
Here is a brief description of our events of 2012 with lots of pictures!
New territory! This is the furthest North we've been in the state of
Georgia thanks to our sponsors:

guys for getting us to this event.
The skies were clear and temperature was nice! It was a beautiful day
to be outside learning about chickens; and that's how the people who
came to the Union
Junction Jamboree felt.
Our audiences were
charmed by chickens.
They spead the word
about our Eggzibit and
we had great turnouts
for every show.
I wanted to post this picture of our set up to show off the triangle banners the Chicken Lady HANDMADE.
Thank you Mr. Julian Diaz of
IAR International Appraisal & Research Group
for all the work you put forth to make
the childrens area a great sucsess!
The parade was huge and had all the attention for a while. During that time we
had the rare opportunity to tour the festival area. The Chamber of Commerce put
forth a lot of effort to make this quaint festival fun and successful for everyone.
After the parade, we were overrun with curious patrons. I did two shows back to
back! The crowds were inquisitive and polite and we always had people around
the coop asking questions and taking pictures. This festival was fun and well
worth the 8 hours of driving time.
Thank you Jennifer Farrin, your staff was welcoming
and helpful. It is always a pleasure to see the people that
Here's Massey possing for a promo pic at the end of the day.

Milan provided wonderful bleachers for our spectators...
and we filled them with every show! Quite a few times it was
standing room only! Fruit Punch played the piano well for bread; and
then played better, and danced for French Fries.

Fruit Punch enthusiastically played his piano with little
encouragement from the Chicken Lady.
Crowds flocked to see the musical duo
of man and chicken.
The weather was unseasonably hot for November with a high of 85. That didn't stop the chicken fans from standing in large
numbers for every show. Thanks to the Calvary Lions Club for inviting us again this year. We really enjoy being a part of
this enormous event.

It was the 2007 Swine Time Festival that we upgraded from small shelf speakers to a large PA system. After 6 years we are
still growing and continuously draw large crowds for every show! Thank you Climax Community Club for including us in
your entertainment family.
