What makes a show duck?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

My brother and I are in 4h and have 9 ducks. We will be taking 4 ducks two the fair (two drakes and two ducks) but are not sure which ones to bring since we do not know what seperartes a champion duck from a last place duck. I know this seems like a dumb question to ask but it is our first time owning/showing poultry. Any advice or tips on showing ducks would be really helpful too thanks!!!

The American Standard of Perfection says it all. It gives the standard for most breeds so you can know what bird matches the standard closer than the other. The judges use the standard for judging. 

 

Good luck in your show!

I purchased my book on Amazon. It cost around $40 bucks. That's practically the cheapest you can buy them online. Yeah, I know, crazy. If you get a used one, I'm sure it'll be a little cheaper.
