    Just assuming here that you are asking about showing in the breeding class.
    What breed is it? Does it come close to the standard description?
    Yes it'll be a little on the young side but do you really care? I would say pack him up and let people have a look.

    Thanks for the reply. He's a blue slate and he is very close to the breed description. I will be bringing some chickens and a lot of people have told me there are hardly ever turkeys. I want to get this guy used to crowds because I was thinking about bringing him along when I do school talks and so on.
