Yes, there are lots of stories in their catalog. But I have noticed that they are usually people who order LARGE numbers of one breed, and then pick out one good bird to show. I have a black non-bearded Silkie that came from Ideal. I plan on showing it; whether or not it will win is something different.

Best of show with a black cochin pullet from Murry Mcmurray. She is a beauty! The chance can be a little slim though. It depends on how many you order. I was lucky. This was the only black cochin I got from them.

Where does one get show-quality stock, anyway? I mainly want eggs, but a really beautiful bird strutting around would be even better eye candy.
