Wish I could enter Scooter, I think he would be ham enough to enjoy it.
Only thing is that most people that show birds seem to keep them caged up and off dirt, no sun.
I would never have known sun was an issue until one year a couple of us had dull birds...sunshine.
Hopefully I'll have young birds, Rau line. Right now I have 5, in hopes to have a few more by then to share.
He is handsome and loveable, but up against the Book of Standards, there are a lot of "demerrits" (? term). He is a daddy now, we have 6or 7 babies at this point. The hen is one of the lines that Karl Rau produced, Scooter does have Karl Rau line in him, yet was from a different breeder.
The babies have super tail form and I can't wait to see what they grow into! Lucy, blue mottled and Scooter black mottled (someone mentioned birchen) and they throw some potential handsome chicks!
Ah, wishful thinking, I may enter him just for smiles, its a buck, not like I'm losing a lot of money.

There will be exhibits/demonstrations by 4-H'ers on Sunday and its free to the public!
Even if you do not want to join in on the poultry club, please come out to watch the kids do their things, its great community service- support the 4-H clubs!
Remember, we are talking August 2nd ....

It is a fun show...less about showing and more about meeting, greeting, getting birds tested for the upcoming fairs and a good way to find out what the Northern New England Club members are all about.

True that Joanie, its great to put faces with names and as long as no one brings a redneck special again...then I won't get laughed at! Ha ha, its great. Also, if you have something chicken related..well, I don't think it has to be strictly chicken related, as I bought things that had nothing to do with chickens..thermos and cup...and some how, I got the gun rack and past hunting manuals and laws. (like I needed the hunting stuff- but it gave them all a great laugh!)
Its great to meet and learn...
