    You keep your bird!
    As for the tail feathers, see if you can smooth them out a bit before you stuff them into the show cage. Once they're in there, they don't usually come out until after they're judged.

    I'd dopeslap silly the jerk who told you that you give up your bird. [​IMG] :thun
    But then again, when I was a senior in high school, I told the freshmen that the gym was right by the pool. We didn't have a pool...[​IMG]

    There are no terminal shows for exhibition poultry that I know of. The show at Shawnee typically is a really good show with lots of competition. Premium money is the money awarded for the place of the bird. Is your daughter showing as a junior or is she in the open show? If she is an FFA member, that show used to be an easy place to win Outstanding FFA Exhibit. I won it with only three birds in the show.
