Hi! I live in a small, rural county & on a lark (well after talking to a guy involved with the competition who encouraged me to do so) I decided to enter a chicken into the county fair in a couple weeks. I have a couple of really gorgeous white Ameraucanas but they're also great layers & very cuddly & if anything happened to them I'd be devastated. So I decided to enter one of my pretty Australorp pullets instead. This one has the most wonderful posture/shape & is just a beautiful, healthy chicken & as best as I can tell from reading the list she conforms well to the breed standard. I've never taken part in a show as anything but a spectator so I have no clue how to prepare. The one thing that worries me a little is that even though she's friendly & comes running to eat out of my hand and lets me pet her she really does not like to be held. Is that a problem? I'd really appreciate any advice you all have! Thanks very much!
