I have a show coming up (small agricultural show) on June 11th...and the hen I had been prepping has lost her feathers underneath (broody patch) although not acting broody. She is still in great condition and until you put your hand under you wouldn't notice.

Would you bother bringing her or just take the other 2 birds I'm planning showing? As it's a local show I'm thinking better to bring her than leaving a pen empty? (Entries are already in) Good show experience or her even if she probably won't place?

Thanks for the swift reply. I didn't even notice the feather loss until I picked her up to bring her in for some refresher pen training as she didn't get to the only show I entered her in due to the bird flu restrictions over here (Ireland).

She's in a pen for training currently, I'm leaning towards bringing her along if she looks otherwise good on the day.
