    I don't know the best area to post this...but how do you get started showing chickens? Like at fairs, and stuff like that. I am very interested in showing some of my silkies when they are older. Do you have to register them? Any info and advice welcomed! I am also located in Wisconsin if that helps.


    Thanks! [​IMG]

    You might start by attending a few shows. Your state fair would probably be a good place to start. Also, check the national association for your breed to see what shows are coming up. You will learn so much by attending a show and asking questions. You will find people who are excited about their breed and hobby and love to share their expertise.
