    I plan to show this rooster next month and am looking for some help in show conditioning. Currently we feed a laying mash in addition to corn on cob, tomatoes, yellow squash, pumpkin, peppers, and zuchini everyday. Is there anything I should not feed? And what type of mash pellets is best for show stock? I was told he needs a bit more weight. Any pointers would be wonderful. I have never shown before and appreciate all opinions!

    Put him on a gamebird grower to help him gain a bit of protein. Avoid anything yellow - corn, etc. This may tinge his white feathers yellow. Make sure he doesn't spend too much time in the sun, or it will do the same as the corn.

    Good luck! Nice looking boy :)

    If your show is within a month I would keep his feed the same. If you start switching feed around you may put them in molt.
