    I've had chickens for a year but I've been interested in showing, however I have not the slightest clue on how to show or where to start. How do you show chickens? What do they look for in the chickens? Basically any chicken showing info would be great!

    What is your location? do you know what breed(s) you would like to show? Those two things can help us point you in the right direction for the most relevant information.

    Find a show in your area and attend it.
    Talk to any and everyone you can that is there showing.
    You'll learn a ton, see a lot of breeds, meet some great people.

    I'm in Colorado and I have not the slightest clue as I'm not sure what breeds are even shown.

    If you are a minor there are also usually county fair, 4H, FFA, etc type shows as well.
