Isaac Marchal, 15, and his brother, Nathan, 9, bathe one of the family's hens outside the poultry barn at the Mercer County Fair this week. The Marchal family of Cranberry Prairie regularly shows poultry at the fair and this year took home the distinguished Grand Champion Pen of Layers award and the Professional Showmanship award.
