    How do you think these guineas would do in a show? I have never entered anything in a poultry show or even been to one so I don't know how it works so if you could tell me what you have to do in order to enter and stuff. I live in NC.
    Just say what guinea you think would do best. Say Picture 1, 2, 3 like that.[​IMG]
    Thanks,
    Ashley
    1 is a male pearl pied.
    2 is a male white.
    3 is a male coral blue.
    4 is a female royal purple pied.
    5 is a female buff.

    That's an interesting question. I've never seen a Guinea at a show. How do they cope with being confined in a small cage?

    1ST if you are showing in an APA show, only 3 colors are APA
    1. white
    2. Pearl Gray
    3. Lavender

    2nd any guinea that has white beside the color such as in the 1st picture is pied (aside from all white) Pied pearl gray would be the color.

    3rd Temperment is also a consideration.

    That being said, my son showed his guineas at our 4-H poultry show and his Royal Purple female won Best of Show! Make sure you choose the best looking. Feathers in order, waddles even, etc.

    Quote:Ours do fine in a small cage for showing. We've had them at the County fair for 4 days and they did fine. This year was too hot however and all chickens and guineas had to go home [​IMG]
