    This is my first year with chickens so I'd like to be able to attend a show that I might be able to show in next year. My Internet search has not turned up much in southern California. How do you go about finding APA shows in your area (for large fowl)?

    San Diego County Fair- late June, Del Mar

    SoCal Fair- early October, Perris

    There's another one in Ventura that I think is put on by a poultry group, but I don't remember the time of year.

    Your best bet to find out about APA shows is probably to subscribe to The Poultry Press. There are some past and upcoming shows listed at http://californiapoultrypeople.blogspot.com. Also, if you join your breed's organization/club they will most likely announce shows.

    Thanks all. The SoCal Fair is not too far so I may visit there.

    Is the format of the fair prety similar to the APA shows?
