    My daughter wants to show our Polish Chicken this year. Her teacher (Agriscience) tells her that our chicken needs a Birth Certificate. Has anyone heard of this? We went and searched for this perticular breed just for her to show. We found a breeder in N.C. (we are in Miami) and drove the baby back down here. Can anyone tell me what is actually required to show a chicken and if she needs a birth certificate how would I get one??
    Thank you

    you don't need a birth cert. That teacher is.....um.....misinformed.

    You will probably need a vet health certificate. Depending ont he kind of show. Some require the health cert prior to "cooping in". Other shows have a vet on hand to check the birds. Also, some shows require all birds to be tested fro certain diseases. This could be done at the show or prior.

    Your best bet is to find out who is hosting the show and contact them for exactly what they require.

    I agree, but just for fun, you should make one up in Office and print it out and give it to the teacher, along with the health certificate. [​IMG]

    So anyhow, what date should your certificate have? The day the egg was laid, (birth) or when it hatched? LOL
