    Well, I've looked around and checked stickies and can not find a thread that is just for general showing chatter.

    I'm really, really interested in showing.. but I have tons of questions. I'm afraid of coming into another thread and asking questions because I don't want anyone to feel like I'm trying to invade.

    Well.. if this is in the wrong place, please move it.

    My questions:

    What is considered show quality?
    How do you get started showing?
    How do you know if you have a show quality bird?
    Do show quality birds live indoors or outdoors?
    How do you tame a chicken to make it cooperate at shows?

    How do you know if you have a show quality bird? ask some that shows birds
