    Look at those moves. I do not know about chicken shows. But she could be a winner on Dancing with the Stars!

    Can'r really say at this age, she needs to get all her feathers and close to full size before anyone can really say.

    Agreed with above poster. I had a show quality brahma, then her comb developed and its not show perfect, its nothing I've ever seen before actually. Ugh.

    Also is that iceberg lettuce? I'd forgo that and replace it with dark, leafy greens. Iceberg has no nutrition [​IMG]

    She looks like a blue frizzle cochin. I'm new to showing myself,I've only been to two shows,but cochins do VERY well from what I've seen!
    Any chicken can be a frizzle,and her coloring looks good. Wait until she feathers out and see how her tail and legs look.

    Here's a good illustration of a nice cochin tail-

    Notice how there are barely no tail feathers and the heavy feather footing? These are things the judges like.


    If she turns out to look like this,find a better one-
