    Show at your county fair or show at an open poultry show? Many county fairs offer a mixed class.

    Birds from hatcheries are rarely worthy of exhibition. I suggest that you purchase from a breeder. A showmanship bird need not be purebred, but you should know what it is a mix of, and where it fails to meet the standard.

    No hatchery has true araucanas or ameraucanas.
