    I have 5 Faverolles. I ordered 10 but 3 were roosters, so I gave them to a friend who loves roosters. 2 turned out to be Dorkings. I showed a Dorking with the Faverolles. Before I gave away my roosters, I showed a rooster. He took champion showing and grand champion over all.

    This was my first year to show something. It was a long hard week. It was worth it, had some good times.

    well thats good, they dont take the chickens and kill them if they win do they? i got the wrong type of chickens that i ordered and they said it was alot of work to get the chickens bak and forth from the place they got them from, but then i got attached to them.

    No, I would never let them take my chickens, I am very attached to them. You can choose to sell them or not, no one sold theres when I was showing. If you do sell, there's a possibility that the person would take the chicken to eat, that's why I don't sell.
