The show is February 25-27, and I am trying to decide if it's worth it for me to take my two little young birds, a pair of bantam cochins. It would be my first show. I've never been to an APA show before. Safford is 90 minutes away from me through the mountains, and I am definitely going to go even if I don't show. But how to decide??? PROS:Good for experience. My brother lives in Safford and I could stay with him. CONS:My two older sons have a district championship basketball game the 26th. I only have two birds to take, and have never even seen what a show champion looks like in person. Is it worth it to show just for the experience? My pullet is 9 months old, my cockerel is 6 months. My brother lives in Safford and I'd stay with him. Would I get more out of showing than just walking around the show?
