We are new to raising chickens. We have 6 that we got in the spring from Rural King & knew nothing when we started. My 12 year old now wants to show chickens at next year's fair. Another task I know nothing about, but I want to learn. Where can I purchase fair-worthy chicks? What should I be aware of when selecting what breed to show? Of course, she wants bantams- something along the lines of silkie/frizzle/polish. Are these breeds "trainable"? What's the "ideal" age for showing? Can you enter more than one chicken into the contest? Are there different competitions within the show? Does this just differ from fair to fair? Keep in mind, she will mainly be doing this for fun. She is not as competitive as I am, but I would LOVE to see her come home with a ribbon for something!
