  1. We're taking a roo, hen and pullet (black bantam cochins) to our county fair next weekend. Any particular pointers from you show folks??

    The two adults molted about a 6 weeks ago and look fairly well feathered back in.

    I'm curious how you go about entering.

    I went to the Callahan fair (near Jacksonville) this weekend and there wasn't a single Silkie in there!

    From what I saw it looked like all of them were owned by 4Hers. Does anyone know, do I have to find a 4Her to show them or do they have their own?

    Check out the American Poultry Association and then google alot, I found stuff that way! Most breeds have clubs, and the clubs will help you when you join them!
