Great website for the APA, by the way, you might want to check it out.


Okay, thanks, I'll definitely check the website out.

How do you get bands/what are they needed for?

 

What is PeeWee, Junior, Intermediate and Senior mean for showmanship? Which one should I choose?

 

And why would it say don't enter your showmanship bird?

 

Here's the link to the form if it is any help: http://www.pacificnorthwestpoultry.com/wp-content/uploads/documents/Youth%20Entry%202015%20Fall%20show.pdf

 

Thanks for viewing! I am grateful for all replies.


Bands help identify the specific birds; they are "required" for most shows, but really are needed only to distinguish/identify a specific bird.

 

Peewee, etc are based upon your age, and what you are expected to know.  An 18 year old is expected to know considerably more than a 5 year old.

 

Some shows do not want you to enter your showmanship bird in exhibition as having the birds out of the cages for showmanship during exhibition judging can be a concern.  When the bird is not present in its cage during exhibition judging, it is not judged.

Double cooping is preferable for extremely large or longtailed birds; you usually pay extra for that, but it is worth it.  Bantams do not need double coops.  You will still pay for each bird you enter, even if you want them cooped together.
