    Hello all! I was just wondering who was going to be participating in the 2012 fair? I figured it is never to early to get your ducks in a row. I also wanted to get some advice from seasoned showers.

    This coming year, I would love to show:
    Blue Polish hen
    Pure black (so black he is GREEN) Indian Runner drake
    Pure black Muscovy drake

    My possibles include the Japanese, Austrolorp and Belgian cocks, 1 or 2 hens for the egg competition, and IF IF IF they have a mut entry, I have a silkie mix that is so black, she is green, too.

    I have been poking around and wondering the same thing. I can't wait until the fair rolls around. Good luck at the fair it sounds like you have some wonderful birds.

    Also, you might try getting n touch with your local 4H club. I am sure someone would now there.

    im not showing but would be interested in watching what one does in the adult show ring.
    do they judge the persons abilities with the chicken like in 4h or is it just who has the prettest chicken?
    the kids are entering in other categories though.
    our dd is making a fairy garden to disply at the fair.she is so bubbly over it ,love her excitment.
    they have a lego category the kids can enter also,so fun.

    Always seem to be out of town but maybe not this year [​IMG].
    Would love to go and see a poultry show, but unlikely to be showing anything this year. Kind of worried what little "friends" the birds could come back with.

    I went to the fair yesterday and they were just getting warmed up with animals. They had some goats, cows, and llamas. There were a ton f pigeons on display as far as birds go. I checked on the website and it says that poultry wil be there June 12-17 - so starting on Wednesdayq there should be chickens at the fair! Wahoo!
