    I was just wondering if adults can show chickens? I haven't showed any type of animal since FFA, and thought about showing some of my flock for fun.

    Well absolutely!!

    The American Poultry Association or APA is a good source for information:

    There is also a youth area just for kiddos, if you want to start them young.

    There are several breeders who show their birds all over the country on this board! Most of the shows you will go to, you will be amazed at the age of the breeders. No offense to the breeders, but many are over the age of 50 and male. Very neat to be able to connect a face to the names.

    I know I get a thrill, who cares about actors or actresses, it's all about meeting the people in the poultry world for me!
