I am new to chickens & the silkie world and would love to start breeding & showing silkies. I would like to attend shows to go look and learn, but I guess my first question would be, where do you go to find out where and when are the shows? Also, are there books or online resources on how to get started? I am not sure if there are shows near me during the winter months so I guess if there arent any until spring, I could spend my winter reading up on them! I would prefer something that would show pictures or examples of a good quality silkie. I learn better by visually seeing something. For example, reading the standard on a silkie comb, I can kind of picture what it should be like but it would be better for me to actually see one, if you know what I mean. That is why I would like to start attending shows, etc. Any ideas on where to get started? Thanks!!!!
