    I'm not sure that this is the right place to put this, but my hen just molted and I think she looks better than she has ever looked. She is a Blue Jersey Giant. I find her to be quite lovely.
    I know its probably hard to tell from a picture, but could anyone tell me if she is show quality? I'm not sure how to go about showing or anything like that, so it may never happen. But I'm just kind of curious.
    I don't know her bloodlines or anything, but I could find them out. I don't know if that matters in showing? Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!


    PS. I know the roo isn't show quality, he's a slash and he has yellow legs. hahaha. He's a good boy though.

    she's pretty what u need to do is bath her with light puppy shampoo and then dry her off keep her clean of any poop or anything like that then u need to make her calm so that the judges can hold her and u also need to be kinda flipping her around pulling her wings out touching her legs stuff like that

    I'm not sure how to really go about the showing part of it. Do I just google shows in my area to see if there is something near me?
    I guess I could probably look on this forum and maybe find a show or some more information about it! haha.
    Do I need any genetic information on her?
    The only downside to her is, she isn't very people friendly. She doesn't like to be touched very much. Should I hatch some of their eggs out and use her babies to show? I think with that hen and rooster, they'll throw the light blue color. Is that a viable color for blue giants?

    I guess I need to do some googling and research!

    Some places to look for shows in your area are the websites for American Poultry Association and Poultryshowcentral.com.
