    I saw an ad on my area craigslist for someone selling "show chicks"...it says they just got in a shipment and lists lots of breeds. This irritates me....since when can you call chicks "show chicks" it's too early to tell! LOL! Does this bother anyone else??? Had to vent! HAHA!

    My advice? Run quickly the other way!! Selling SQ chicks and SQ eggs is one of my big pet peeves.....there is no such critter.

    Quote:I'm betting this. 4H is for fun, most of the birds are hatchery. Just like most of the horses shown in 4h aren't purebred, and if they are, not "show quality", and like my mutt dog did me just fine showing in obedience. Trust me, most folks who want to show APA know the difference and won't get hurt.

    The thing that gets to me how do you know that they are not show Quality. Hard to judge something you can not see. Don
