    Hello,

    I am looking into getting some chickens. I am thinking about Standard Light Brahmas and/or Silkies. I have met and seen some really friendly and beautiful Light Brahmas, and I love how huge they are [​IMG]. And I have had a silkie pair before (about 3 years ago), and they were the friendliest little guys. I would be showing them in 4-H and am wondering what I should be looking for in both breeds. (What colors of silkie are showable?) I will be looking around on here to see if anyone has any. My struggle is that I only want a couple of each. And I need to get them before May 15, if I am going to show them in 4-H.

    I am also interested in showing them, in other things then 4-H. How would I get into that? Are the entries expensive?

    Thanks you!

    Check out their Breed standard and also their Breed websites... Google is your friend! [​IMG] This will tell you accepted color varieties, what to look for and what disqualifies a bird. We have many wonderful breeders here on the BYC that should be able to help you out when you;re ready for some eggs/chicks [​IMG]
