    I'm looking for a roo to show for either 4H or any other poultry shows that may come to town, and I figured that most people may not be reliable (I'm a newbie, so I'm not particularly savvy with knowing what makes a rooster "Show quality") and I don't think they'd tell me if he wasn't. So I was wondering if anyone knows any truly reliable performance breeders who live/breed in Washington state or ship if they don't.
    I'm interested in Orpingtons, Ameraucana, Welsummers, Wyandotte, Marans, Cochins, Brahma and am basically open to any handsome roosters that might do well in a show.

    I would like to purchase some chickens around May. I am leaning towards Wyandottes and Orpingtons. I am having a VERY hard time locating anyone to provide birds. I like how Paul's Poultry's Wyandottes look....BEAUTIFUL birds. However I can't get ANYONE to return my emails to let me know if they sex the chicks, or how to order. Does anyone have any advice on breeders, I do not want hatchery birds.

    I live in SE WA (Tri-Cities) and have some nice silver laced wyandotte cockerels available. Already been shown in open APA class. If you come down this way I can help you out.
