    As far as the Showgirls go, I have no clue. I dont think they are a recognized breed by the APA or ABA so not sure that you could. But the Polish, yes, they can be shown. You would show them as Polish Frizzles. You will have to specify sex, color, bantam or std, etc. but they can be shown.

    Showgirls can be shown as well. Since they aren't recognized, they can't go any farther than Best of Breed (I think). Bantams are about 1/3 of the size of a standard. so they are probably no more than two pounds.
