    This will be a show at my local country fair in April. It is a low key show and charges no entry fee unless you are doing 4H showmanship. I am not expecting to take home the gold or anything. Winning something would be really nice though and I will try my damnedest. I really am looking forward to doing this all with my son so he can have all the experience with this and just have fun.

    We are planning to enter a Cayuga Drake, a frizzled Silkie hen, a Mottled Cochin Bantam hen, and a Silkie Paint Rooster. According to the what have attached can someone please point me in the right direction of how and what category they would place these different birds in. The duck is easy. I am working on also entering my Gambles Quail male. That would obviously be in the quail category.

    Questions to these and any additional advice would be very much appreciated!!! Thank you!

    The best suggestion I can make for your first show is get a APA standard book. You will easily find out all this info plus much more. They can be purchased at www.amerpoultryassn.com
    Or sometimes you can find them at the library.

    The silkies and cochins would both be considered feather legged bantams. I've never shown before so I can't offer much more advice. Good luck though! :)
