    I just use the photo uploader here. Click uploads (up on the blue bar) upload your pic and copy and paste the url. Easy peasy.

    Are they show-quality ducks? It isn't quit as easy as catching a duck, putting it in a cage, and entering it in the fair. Maybe you already know this, but I didn't know for sure. [​IMG]

    Quote:Actually, depending on where you live, it is that easy. There are two fairs in the county I live in every summer, and I can count all the families that exhibit poultry at them (including my family) on one hand - all the other ducks that are entered (besides mine) are always Pekins or Rouens from McMurray Hatchery or home-bred mutts. Most of my ducks aren't "show quality", but they bring home plenty of blue ribbons, and my younger sisters have a blast showing them! [​IMG]

    I'm so glad that some shows allow this--especially for children.​
