    I'm going to take some birds to show for the first time next weekend. What would you suggest I take with? Someone mentioned a folding chair. What else would you suggest?

    I'm not sure if it's what you're looking for, but I got this as a general guide for when I show for the first time, too, in June. I'm going to follow it.

    Again, not really what you're asking, but maybe there're a few items of interest that pertain to your liking. [​IMG] You know, for your birds. [​IMG]

    I do not show chickens, but I do show horeses and particpate in BBQ contests. And I can tell you that taking the right stuff to a show or competition can make or break your weekend. What was do an imaginary walk through of my time at the show or event. I assume most poultry shows are indoors, but think about things like water for drinking snacks, naps, weather, (never forget a chair) cooler etc. As I do this walk through I make notes of things that need to go with me. The more finitely you do this the better your list will be. After you have forgotted some critical stuff you will have a much better list.
