THATCHER — The annual Safford Chicken Show has been scheduled for Jan. 13, at the Graham County Fairgrounds Ag Building, from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m., and the entire community is invited to come out to this free, fun, family-friendly event.

“This is a great event for 4H and FFA youth who are interested in poultry,” said James Smith, the show’s coordinator. “Come on out and get back to the basics.”

More than 40 growers from all over the Southwest have entered their chickens, ducks, turkeys, and geese to compete for prizes in nearly 20 categories.
