    I am showing a barred rock hen, a Pekin duck, and a Rouen duck In an OPEN CLASS. This is my first time showing, I am showing at the county fair.

    here are the questions I would really like to have answers to:

    does the judge ask you questions in an open class show? if so what are some examples of questions they might ask?
    Are the heavy weight ducks (the Pekin) shown different then the light weight ducks? if so how are they showed?

    what are some ways to keep them clean while they are caged at the fair?

    what are some tips on washing and grooming your chicken and duck for fair? I don't want to spend lots of money buying special sprays and shampoos what are some inexpensive ways to get your chicken and ducks to shine?

    This is my first time and I have no clue what this will be like or how to show so I am nervous about it and I would really love to get as much information as I can so I can get somewhat of an idea on what to do.
