    Who can tell me what all is involved in having my son show in showmanship? Do I need to have my entire flock tested? Is it too late to enter him at York?

    Annie, your biddies are adorable!!!

    I'm going to be sad to see little Duke go to a new home. (He'll probably be big Duke by then, LOL!) He's such a sweetheart, perfect shoulder chicken. I've never owned BOs, or orps of any kind before but this fella makes me want to pick up a couple girls in the future :)
    I'll probably going to be getting rid of the two cull New Hampshires too (German strain, going to be gorgeous yard candy, even if they can't be shown!) eventually. No idea on the sex of those two yet, they're only 11 days old. Hopefully the Light Sussex is a pullet. I don't know how many roosters I can stand :lol:

    Nope, York stops accepting after the 25th, get those entries out!!!!
    Have you competed in showmanship before? Do you know the laydown? Even if I'm not competing in open show, I still have a copy of the bird's lab papers in case someone stops and asks :) It's never a bad idea test before hand, better safe than sorry

    April, get your entry in asap! I'm sure we can figure out what he needs to know. He's 9 right? I'll do some digging and see what I find.

    These two are Pekins. Big, white, commonly found Quackers! Other white duck breeds and light colored ducks are similarly colored to these ducklings, so yellow ducklings could be a variety of things, but they're most likely Pekins :) good luck!!! I always love raising ducks, even though mine try their best to be the messiest, nastiest creatures ever :lol:
