    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    So glad you could join our community!

    I don't know a thing about showing birds. But you might stop by this section of our forums for more help with your birds...https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/16188/exhibition-genetics-breeding-to-the-standard-of-perfection

    Here is a couple of threads as well on getting ready for shows...

    Welcome to BYC! Glad you decided to join our flock. I'm not all that knowlegable about showing birds either (I've showed a few in county fairs years ago), but definitely post on the links that TwoCrows has provided you with and take advantage of our experts there. Interestingly enough, the only time I ever won in a country fair was with a pair of Mille Fleur D'Uccles (male and female) that won, not just best of breed, but best of show, and the funny think is that I purchased them from Murray McMurray Hatchery. Who would have thought it? :eek:) No one was more surprised than I was. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck in showing your Mille Fleur D'Uccles.
