How can you tell if a chickens is show quality? I have Buff Orpingtons, RIR, a Cukoo Maran, a Light Brahma, and a Black Austrolorp. First off, are those good breeds to show at a fair, or are chickens like silkies and the other bantams better? Is there something special about a chickens that makes it 'show quality'? Should you wash a chickens before a fair? And if so, how do you do it? Sorry about all of the questions in one subject, but I'm really interested in showing!
