    I would love a bantam Phoenix Roo as a yard ornament. No one near me has them. :(

    Hi all. I am new to chickens. I have a 4-month old chocolate OEG pullet. She is my only bantam and I just love her personality. I'm attaching a picture, could she be shown locally? She is from a hatchery and I have no idea what I'm looking at when it comes to faults. Thanks in advance for any insight![​IMG]

    She is pretty. She is decent looking but I dont know if i dont know if I would call her show quaility. What are you wanting to show her in 4-H?

    I don't have any idea, haha. My oldest just turned 5 and joined 4H only a couple months ago, it's all new to us! Thank you for getting back to me.

    For 4-h she would be just fine. Most 4-h kids get their birds from hatcheries. How is you 5 year old already in 4-h? Where i live you join 4-h when you are in third grade (not sure what age that is). Before then you can only be in mini 4-h and cant show livestock. In the local 4-h mini 4hers can only do things like arts and crafts and posters.

    I'm sure it's the same kind of thing, just a mini 4H - they call it "Cloverbuds". Wouldn't mind learning the ropes of showing a bird myself :)

    Quite a few people have threads about it. Very informative. You could also pm people on here from your area and ask them advice.
