    How should I set up my cochins for show?
    Sitting or standing?

    For like a Poultry show? Depends if your doing Conformation or Showmanship. Conformation it's whatever they do in the box and when they take the bird out, showmanship they have to stand.

    Well like I said, conformation, is when you put them in one of the metal cages and over a period of time (usually near the end of the show day) and they can do whatever because the judge will come over and most likely take them out and observe them not just look at how they're sitting. Though in showmanship you have to make sure the bird is alert but stays on the table and not falls asleep.
