Why did the chicken cross the road? In the case of “Shrek,” the rooster, he was carried across the road, and across Floresville, by members of the Red, White, and Blue Poultry Club during their fund-raiser, “Pass the Rooster 2013.”

Among those participating were club President Michael Schwartz, Vice President Stefani Petersen, Treasurer Sarah Schwartz, Historian Laura Fitzsimon, and member Stefan Petersen, along with their sponsors.

The Red, White, and Blue Poultry Club extends its appreciation to the following businesses and county/city offices for their support and good-humored participation: Wilson County Hardware, Wilson County News, Photographs by Jim, Floresville City Manager Andy Joslin, the Wilson County office of the Texas AgriLife Extension Service, Wilson County Treasurer’s Office, Wilson County Clerk’s Office, Floresville Mayor Diana Garza, Delilah’s Bistro, Flieller Insurance, Ray and Olga’s Barber Shop, and P&T’s Restaurant.

The funds raised will assist with the club’s upcoming egg show and to purchase items for the club.

Egg show

The group will host its first-ever Egg Show, Saturday, April 13, to be held in conjunction with the Fancy Feathers 4-H Club’s sixth annual chicken show. The show is open to all Texas exhibitors -- youth and adults, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. in the Hays County Civic Center, located at 1249 Civic Center Loop in San Marcos.

The egg show will have nine classes, ranging from Bantam and standard in white, brown, and all other colors to Bantam and standard content. Entry deadline is Monday, April 1. For more information, visit http://bit.ly/Sp5HHh.

Other events include the American Poultry Association/American Bantam Association Sanctioned Show, a Backyard Show, Junior Show, and Cluck-off. More than 40 varieties of chickens -- Rhode Island Reds to exotics, such as Seramas -- will be shown. Concessions will be available. Admission is free.

Join the club

The Red, White, and Blue Poultry Club will sponsor area youth wishing to raise and show fancy poultry by gifting them four to six chicks for them to raise, in return for their membership in the local club.

Formed in October 2011, the club is one of the 4-H project clubs within Wilson County. According to Club Manager Susan Schwartz, the members “learn about the American Poultry Association and the American Bantam Association’s guidelines for poultry breeds and their standard of perfection.”

For more information or to make a donation, contact Susan at 830-393-2644 or sms2863@gmail.com.
