Wisconsin State Fair goes to the chickens

Wisconsin State Fair goes to the chickens

By John Mercure. CREATED Aug 8, 2014

Full disclosure here...the only chicken I've ever held is the one I'm getting ready to put on the grill.  I don't know that I've ever touched a living chicken.  Until now.

Erik Bilstad, Andi Miller and I wandered into the chicken barn at the Wisconsin State Fair and got a quick lesson from a young chicken farmer on how to grab and hold a chicken.

It's not as easy as it looks.

Take a listen to see how I did.
