At the risk of sounding like a complete idiot, what are the steps one has to take to enter a bird (or several) in a show, or bring them to an auction? I have chicks with a Pulorum certificate from the hatchery, but understand that they will also need to be blood tested. How much does such testing cost? How do I find a tester in MA? I work at a camp where we have raised a flock of 17 chicks, 16 different fancy/rare breeds, and this fall I need to find homes for them. I'd love to take them to an auction or Topsfield Fair (and/or another in MA, though I missed the deadline for Marshfield), but wonder whether the expense of entering would make it not worth it. Be a shame to just, you know... especially for some of the really pretty ones. Anyone have time to offer a basic primer?
