From Croy Creek Trader's Fair....

Yesterday, we got up and made our way to the Croy Creek Trader's Fair.  We had always heard of it, but for some reason had never made gone.  I did not really go to buy anything...I went to 'see' and maybe take a few photos.  I was hoping to see animals, and I did.  There were quite a few places with chickens.
Here is quite the handsome rooster, probably my favorite.
And here is another pair...I think both are beautiful.
Along the way we saw turkeys...
I don't think I had ever seen a B&W turkey before...
Then there is this fellow....let me tell you about him.

Roger and I were across the way...probably 3 or 4 car lengths from him.  And we were actually looking between cars.  We looked at each other, and we thought and commented about what a fantastic decoy it was.  Fast forward another 25-30 minutes and we are around to where he is located.    He isn't really moving.  But I saw his eyes blink.  I told Roger, "He is real!"  "no, it's not" and I can remember the rest of his reply.  I think it was something about they just do a good job of making them look real.

I said, "His eyes are blinking."  So Roger walks closer till he can see...

No wonder we thought he was a good decoy!

How funny! Maybe he was trying to be still to avoid detection? Since maybe there were no trees or woods to hide in?

I guess he knows he can't get away very far. The turkey seems to be okay with humans so close to it.

having been attacked by both Turkey and Rooster, i would have been hightailing it far away from the decoy as soon as his ees blinked. i have not seen a black and white turkey either but the one that attacked me was all white.

He still doesn't look real--is he?
I like that handsome Rooster.
As to the murals some were along panorama and some were single. The wide canal and street scene was a single.
Good morning!

wonder if he was hand raised as he seems very calm around humans?

That is funny about the turkey Rose. Lovely photos. I do love chickens and wish I could keep some but sadly, couldn't get that passed the HOA either ;)
