    Hello, I'm fairly new to the whole showmanship at fair. This year was my first year showing a chicken. I got docked several points for my chicken being a mixed breed. I was thinking of getting a black mottled serama pullet. But I wasn't to sure if it would be a good show bird.

    I've never had Seramas but they are supposed to be sweet and docile, so they should be fine. They do require a bit more care than other chicken breeds.

    Ive never done showmanship but..
    Seramas are recognized by the ABA so she should be good there. Seramas are usually pretty docile, as long as handled daily.

    I recently showed my Exchequer Serama at our County fair, and she is very calm and friendly, and just a very great show bird in general.
