    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]We're glad to have you.

    Good luck with the first show!

    Here is a good link on going to your first poultry show: http://pathfindersfarm.com/Showing.html

    You may also want to check out the Breeding and Showing section of these forums: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/16188/exhibition-genetics-breeding-to-the-standard-of-perfection I'm sure that there are some other Serama, Silkie, or Orpington breeders or exhibitors on there that will be happy to help you out!

    We'd love an update this weekend on how well you do! [​IMG] How many birds are you taking?

    Will the seramas be table judged? My friend has two serama hens, there's a lot of chicken in those little packages. She also has silkies. Had a lovely Buff orp who sadly morphed into a rooster and had to be rehomed.

    I'm not sure. Never done this before. It's my state fair so I think they might be cooped.

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. I don't know a lot about showing birds, but you might want to post some pics of your Seramas on our Exhibition and Breeding to the Standard of Perfection section at https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/16188/exhibition-genetics-breeding-to-the-standard-of-perfection and take advantage of our experts there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck in showing your Seramas, and in getting your Silkies and Buff Orpingtons.
