I'm really wanting to start showing silkies. I've had them before and planned on showing but something happened and then I got rid of all my chickens. I've missed them so much and have decided to get back into them but this time not just as pets but as show birds for a hobby. I could only keep about 4 silkies and no roosters cause i live in the city. I've always thought that you had to be involved in 4h or ffa to show them is that true? I'm not interested in showing thru them so how do you get to show? How do you find shows? Do you just show up with your birds? My plans are to get hatching eggs from show quality silkies and hatching them. How do you go about determining which ones to keep for show? And also how do you raise them? In metal rabbit type cages from when they are babies or when they are older or in a brooder and then a coop outside? I'm just totally lost and am in need of information so I know what I'm doing. Thanks to all that reply in advance!
