    I have a few questions about showing. 1-Should state applied metal legbands be removed or left on for show. 2-Junior Show(not showmanship)do they simply cage birds like in adult show, or do they need to know info about birds, etc. 3- NPIP. I am NPIP, but have bought and hatched birds since last being inspected. Do birds I bought from other NPIP birds have to be certified or can I just put them under my number? Or do I need the seller's NPIP number as a backup? Any info will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    As far as the metal band I've been to shows and seen chickens with more than one band, so I don't think you have to take it off.
    As far as NPIP- At my daughter's last show in April we brought birds that were not tested when the others were (because they were too young), and when I asked the The man drawing blood (for people without NPIP cards), he said it was fine, it's good for one year, even for new birds, as long as you have the NPIP card.

    That's for Florida, I don't know about other states.

    I want to show in the Inverness Show in November and want to make sure I do every thing right. I showed at Lake City last year but just one bird. Thanks for all the info.
