    This is my son's first year having dark cornish bantams. We were wondering if anyone could possibly help us decide which one's he should take to our county fair. We have never had this breed before. ANY input would be GREATLY appreciated! Pictures would be also VERY helpful!!! Thank you! [​IMG]

    You could start by putting pics of your birds on here, and let some of the folks that know cornish critique them. Knowledgeable cornish people will be able to tell you much more about your birds than you will be able to spot yourself. seeing pics of their birds wont help near as much.

    I would recommend ordering a copy of 'The Standard of Perfection' from the American Poultry Association. Anyone interesting in showing or breeding poultry should have this book. It's the bible for birds.
