    Hello, we have a town fair comming up in a few weeks, and we would love to show our little bantam rooster to see if we can get a ribbon. The only problem... we have never done it before and am unsure if he is even show quality or if he is a true breed... I believe he is araucana??
    Can someone help me get this fair done with not too many problems and tell me what breed he is ? I need help|!!!!!! We have no idea how to prep him either, he is a free range bird and isnt to handly if you catch my drift, but in the evenings he is very easy to handle, and he doesnt become so flightly.
    Thank you
    this is Rocket...

    Definately not an Araucana. Appears to be a handsome cross breed.

    Yes, he's a macho little guy. [​IMG] Looks like a cute mutt. He MIGHT have some Easter Egger in his bloodline somewhere. But I wouldn't take a chicken to a fair unless it's a pure-bred.
