    Ok i would really like to know what some of my chickens are rated, "show quality" or "pet quality". Any information you can give me that is not very show quality about one of my birds would be great. i am thinking about getting into showing my chickens so i thought i would try and learn a little about showing them. Thanks!
    First off is Sanga my barred rock hen:

    I don't know much about those breeds, but I would say order the APA book of standards. That gives all the information and quailifications for each breed. I think that your d'uccle looks good, are some of her feet feathers broken? I know that you want to have the least amount of feather damage as possible. Good luck!

    Quote:I thought about getting that book a while back ago. one of my friends said i could barrow it. And yes her feathers on her feet are broken but that is an older pic, i have been working with her for about 1 year now so i think she does look better now.
    Thanks!
