    Many diffrent ways to get into the chicken game I would say finding quality stock in #1 at least in my opinion espeacially if you are interested in showing.

    We all have diffrent opinions but I personally think thats the best, because the secetary will be able (hopefully) to give you a list of the best breeders in your country or state.​

    oh I didn't realize your from Australia? I saw some awsome Salmon Faverolles listed on an Australian Board look into them I am hopelessly obseased with faverolles [​IMG] I would suggest finding poultry enthusiasts in Australia and getting the right breeders info from them. You will also get tapped into the show circut and learn alot about birds.

    Simple... breeders list.. and if they're breeders and show people then their birds will be bred according to standard of perfection for the breed..... and if #1 is lucky then he/ she'll meet a true fancier whose aim is to better the breed by educating new comers on the do and don'ts of the breed....

    What's your opinion?
