No bird flu this year so animals on display at the Wood County Fair

BOWLING GREEN (13abc Action News) - The bird flu cancelled poultry shows last year at county fairs in our area. This year, there are no empty cages at the Wood County Fair.

They used picture books and stuffed animals to point out different parts of the birds in 2015. That won't be the case this week.

4-H kids are showing off their poultry skills in Bowling Green this week.

"I can hold my chickens and show them," said Thomas Bodner.

"It's more exciting when you have the chickens here," said Jamie Wonderly."

Poultry showmanship for juniors is on Wednesday and judging is Thursday morning.

The Wood County Fair ends Monday the 8th.
