I was talking with my family members the other day when they came by for thanks giving and we took them on a tour of the farm. When we got to my birds that asked if I showed them. I explained to them that I didn't show them but they are very hand tame, and I told them a bit about the breed including the fact that they fly and that once they are older and have been trained a bit more I might consider showing them as they are Sumatra's. I have never shown chickens before only cows, donkeys, horses, and rabbits. So talking to my family some more over dinner got me thinking and I was hoping some of you might know the answers to my questions.
What are the general classes for showing Chickens?
Is there a class for breeds that can fly or events and things these birds can be taken to?
Or perhaps a special show or even for hand tamed birds that are trained to do tricks?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have never considered showing my Sumatra's before, and I think it would be a good way to let others know about the breed and to advertise my farm a bit as they are only one of the three breeds I am breeding and I intend to pick up a fourth breed next summer.
Thank you to anyone that can help answer my questions, or give me some general information.
