    Would it be a waste to show her? I mean if some one could beat her easily.

    It depends on where you show her. If you're showing her in a local/county fair, give her a few months and she'll do just fine. If you intend on going to APA shows, you won't place well, if at all.

    Quote:I'd agree. She might look better if you let her grow more. Did you get her from a hatchery?

    Maybe a better picture would tell us more [​IMG]

    Yeah she will be laying before I show her. Yes she was from a hatchery MPC.

    Well her lacing looks good, especially for a hatchery bird. I would suggest county fairs if you want to place, but if you're going to a breed standard show... [​IMG] be prepared to not place.

    Yes it would be a county fair. But I mean I guess she could still not place. Thanks for your help.

    I'll respond as a Judge: first I assume she's supposed to be a Silver Laced Wyandotte although other than colour nothing else indicates that.
    If she were entered in a sanctioned show & she were the only bird in the class I would not place her. She is totally lacking in breed type.

    She's long & flat in the back, tail set is wrong, lacks the roundness a Wyandotte should have, head is very narrow [almost crow headed].
    Here's a link to the Wyandotte Standard. Use it to evaluate your bird.
