I show dogs in AKC occasionally, and I know poultry shows are not the same, but in my time of dog showing, I have been taught to do my research before throwing myself into something, and I was kind of wondering what poultry shows are all about. I'm not sure I'm in the correct forum, and I'm sorry if not, but this is the only "show information" forum I could find. I thought a poultry show might be fun to get into. When I am entering in a dog show, we have a host that goes through AKC. We can make online entries, see results of previous shows, and see upcoming shows for six months. Does poultry have an equivalent? Is there a national data base where results and breeding lines are registered, equivalent to the dog world's AKC and UKC? When a show is being judged, how is it separated by classes? Do you have multiple judges? How is a chicken judged? It's a lot of information, but I know nothing about it. This is Shaine.
