    I have 7 bantams that I want to show in my local fair but the guid book for my fair is not specific about helth requirements for in state poultry(they are real specific about out of state poultry intering Texas for show). [​IMG] Can any one tell me what to do because if I need a vet for this I am going to have to find a vet that will see chickens.

    I would expect that they list a show superintendant; contact that person and ask. I do know that it is almost, if not completely impossible to bring birds into Texas to show, but I don;t think it is that difficult if you are instate.

    Our local fair requires the chicken to be from an npip hatchery or else they have there blood drawn.
