'Everything That Wears Feathers" Will Be at World's Poultry Congress Housed in the Hall of Live Poultry at the Seventh World's Poultry Congress and Exposition in Cleveland, Ohio, July 28 to August 7, 1939, will be probably the most comprehensive display of all breeds and varieties of poultry ever gathered under one roof. It is the purpose of Congress officials to gather and display here representative specimens of every known breed and variety. Asked w h a t the word "poultry" denoted as applied to this exposition, one official has replied--"Everything that wears feathers." Here the visitor will sec every br,-cd of chicken from the familiar breeds of our neighboring (arm yards to rare and exotic varieties from out of the way corners of the world. There will be ducks and geese and turkeys, pigeons, water fowl and other types of common and rare feather bearing specimens. Here before the eye will range a vision of color and graceful line that would surpass any "beauty parade" for interest. Even the most experienced poultrynian will find himself confronted by surprise after surprise as he encounters many of bur lesser known breeds, colorful fowl from the tropics, rare breeds from far off Asia and little known varieties from the out-of-the-way corners of the world. To Congress visitors the Hall of Live Poultry will be a source of new-found interest and pleasure--and a most -worth-while educational feature.
