Hi everyone, I'm new here. I am from Australia and I raise goats - angoras, boers, crossbred commercial meat goats, harness goats, saanens and british alpines. If you cant tell, I love my goats! I also raise LOTS of orphaned lambs each year, all the local sheep farmers here just bring their orphans to me. They will start arriving in May and go through till December lol I dont know all that much about chickens, but I have a couple of Isa Brown hens, 7 weeks old. I'm very into self sufficiency which is why the two hens came to live here. I know about the nutrition requirements, plus health regimens etc. but the bit I dont know is the technical terms for the different breeds and such. I wanted to enter them at my local show, just for a bit of fun. Question is, where do I enter them? The schedule is as follows: Soft feather Large: Ancona Australorp Langshan Leghorn Minorca New Hampshire Orpington Plymoth Rock Rhode Island Sussex Wyandotte AOV S/F large Soft feather bantam Ancona Australorp Belgian Langshan Leghorn, white Leghorn, aoc Orpington Pekin, black Pekin, aoc Rosecomb Seabright Sussex Wyandotte, white Wyandotte, aoc AOV S/F bantam Hard feather large Australian Game Indian Game, dk Indiam Game, aoc Modern Game OEG, black-red OEG, duckwing OEG, aoc Pit Game AOV H/F large Hard feather bantam Australian Game Indian game, dk Indian Game aoc Modern Game OEG, black-red dl OEG, black-red ll OEG, wheaten OEG, blue-red OEG, brown-red OEG, duck-wing OEG, ginger OEG, spangle OEG, aoc Pit Game AOV H/F bantam Then there is a section for breed pairs, waterfowl and a junior section. So what do they mean by hard and soft feather, I know nothing so sorry for the dumb questions, I am thinking that Isa Brown is a soft feather and that i would have to enter in the AOV class. Also, I think they would be large, not bantam. Is that right? As I said, I know squat about chicken breeds.
