So I have my first poultry show coming up on the 21st. And I still have not learned the proper way to show a chicken hmm.png My friends said they would help but they have sort of bailed on me sad.png so I am looking for a guide and really any tips at all to help me with my poultry showmanship! All help is appreciated!

Its kinda hard to explain over just some text message, I suggest asking your 4H leader for some help and g on youtube and watch some showmanship videos. Things I have learned from doing a few showmanships is this-

 

1. DO NOT LET YOUR BIRD FLY OFF THE TABLE- Its a instant disqualification! 

2. Keep your bird awake but calm.

3. When your bird is just on the table try to keep hands off if possible but again, don't let him/her off the table. 

4. SMILE!!! :D Most judges like kids who at least look like theyre having fun!

5. Wear good shoes, you might be standing there for a while... I've had to stand for 35-40 minutes before...
