Chicken Catch

Maybe this is just a thing at our county fair... but it's hilarious
This year our kids joined in the fun!  All kids (10 and younger) can go down to the arena.  They make a big circle, turn around (then the rodeo clown tells them to lay down on their backs, roll over, do a push up, and stand back up). 
Then they let maybe 10-15 chickens loose.  Then oodles of kids make a mad dash trying to catch them.  It's H-I-L-A-R-I-O-U-S to watch.  Benji, Carolyn, Jacob, Emily, Larissa, Harleigh, Mariah and Katie G all took part. 
You can see Larissa and Katie in the start of the video.. and glimpses of rest...


We got some Culver's coupons out of the deal.... :)

What a riot! :) And no tears from those who didn't catch a chicken? That's what I'd be dealing with... two frustrated little boys. Ha.

Looks like a blast! For the kids...not so sure about the chickens. ;-)

So you are back up in dairy country? Ugh...now I am curious how close we were to you also. I will have to drop a message to you on FB.
