    He is a mixed breed rooster, not a show bird. You could probably use him for 4-H/FFA showmanship, but nothing besides that. Sorry.

    he's a mixed breed. You can;t show him. But you might be able to use him for showmanship like donrae said. The reason I'm not sure is because they usually test your knowledge of the breed and well since he is a mixed breed, well they can't exactly do that. Your local 4-h might be willing to let you use him for showmanship anways though, you will just have to ask. BUt you can't actually show him, sorry

    Thank you! That's what I was looking for, I kind of figured he was a mix but he's so pretty and friendly :) maybe my son could show him in 4h... Thank you everyone :)

    If you are going to show you need purebreds not mutts. If you look around where you live I am sure there are many breeders that live around you and most breeders are kind enough to give 4Hers discounts
