Show Chickens!

As I was driving home from work one day I saw the strangest thing out of the corner of my eye. Alright, I was sitting in traffic and was staring blankly into space when it dawned on me that I was looking at an eighteen wheeler full of show chickens. One I was fully aware of what I was looking at, I grabbed my camera out of my purse. By the time I had my camera ready, the traffic started moving and naturally the lane with the show chickens left me in the dust. Thankfully traffic is a funny thing and I was able to catch up enough to take some blind shots. I was paying attention to the moving traffic at this point. I guess "The Powers That Blog" wanted you to see the show chicken truck because I actually managed to get a clear shot. I'm not exactly sure what kind of market there is for show chickens, but obviously they are popular enough to warrant a large truck to transport them. And they seem to be dangerous because they come with a warning.

Random! The poor little guys locked up in that truck, too.

Wonder if they are heading to Houston? It is going to get rather smelly here in the next few weeks. Music and shit. Ain't life grand!

huckdoll: I'm guessing it was air conditioned, but since I'm not a big fan of chickens I'm not too concerned. Is that wrong?

jill: They were headed south on I-35, so maybe to South Texas for chicken fighting?
