I'm very interested in showing chickens. I have a pair of show quality birds alreay, and I think I'm ready to give it a go. But, I have only showed my birds at the county level, and there we show differently than at APA shows. At the county fair, we take our birds out of the cages and bring them into the adjacent stock pavilion, where they are judged and ribbons for that class are handed out. But, is dropping your clean birds off in the morning and picking up your ribbons/awards and your birds at night all you do? It just doesn't seem right to me, somehow... I keep feeling like there has to be more to it! Most of my apprehension is likely due to the fact that the next show in my area is the Wisconsin International. I am not shure that this would be the best choice for a maiden voyage!
