What exactly is the difference between a production and exibition(show) birds? I was wondering this because I took my leghorns to a show and another white leghorn beat him out,but the other bird even had blue in his feathers from to much bluing. He said mine were production birds and now show birds. So I guess if you take a production bird to a show and another bird has broken feathers, lopped over comb and blue in his feather he still beats the very good looking production birds? I even had a knocked knee'd pullet that beat out my other and another pullet. Just wierd lol.
