    This is my fist time showing and I am taking my young khaki Campbell drake to my local fair. I am unaware if I will need to learn duck showmanship for a small local fair. Any input on that is appreciated. Also, I know I need to trim his nails and make sure he is clean. Is there anything else I could do? Thanks!

    I've never showed but have always been interested in it. Storey's Guide to RAISING DUCKS by Dave Holderread has a whole section on showing and it could definitely be helpful to read before you show!Good Luck![​IMG]
