    And do you do layers or broilers? It's a totally different type of showing. My son does broilers.

    I do layers and I've been in 4-H for about a year and have 1 white crested black polish, 1 white bearded polish, 1 black bearded polish, 6 white leghorns, 1 silver laced wyandotte, 1 buff orpington, 1 buff bantam Cochin, and 1 partridge rock. I want to show the cochin and polish because they're the nicest.

    I need to know the parts of the chickens and the breed specifics. Hopefully for christmas, I will get the APA standard book which would help.

    I used to be. A long, long time ago in another galaxy, far, far away... I remember I was in the fifth grade when I was in 4-H. Best three years of my life. The fifth grade, that is... [​IMG]
