It depends on what exactly you are looking for in a bird. I myself would refer almost any feather footed breed as a good show bird. Most feather footed bantams are naturally docile, easy to handle and care for, and very popular, and are relatively easy to find. Not to mention that they are really cool looking. Cochins, Silkies, Brahmas, D'Uccles, Faverolles, Sultans, etc are all great choices.

I agree with Casey. Feather-foots are normally docile and easily handled, pretty easy show birds.

miss heny, also think of what breeds you personally like, that'll help you make a decision.​

All depends on the area you live and if you want competition.

Bantam cochins and anything in the feather leg class is TOUGH competition. Also tough around here is anything in the Single Comb class of bantams and Modern games.

featherlegged birds will demand lots of conditioning prior to show to remove any broken foot feathers. Clean legged and non crested birds are much easier to show. Any bird can be tamed, even game birds, depending on how much effort you put into it.
