    Hi, I'd like to raise showgirl chickens. I know, I must be crazy:eek: This all depends on if my mom likes the idea. She just doesn't understand us chicken fanatics:p If anyone has any input or advice for me I would greatly appritiate it.

    Thanks,
    rjv_piper

    Ya, I live in Utah, would they be good in this cold? And what do you think would be the cheapest way to get them? I'm glad they are good moms, I don't use incubators, I let the hens do all the work.
    Thanks,

    Ya, I belong to the Utah fancy poltry asso. and they have two shows a year, and my cosin has a bator, I think, and he would probably hatch them for me. My grandma was also talking about getting one.

    I have gotten shipped birds before, from a hatchery. [​IMG] I was happy with them.
