So, the boys are going to show in the 4-H poultry classes. They really only want to show their roosters in the breed classes, but are required to do showmanship. There's no way those roosters are going to do showmanship! So now we have to enlist (and show) two of the pullets. The choices are (currently) 8 week Australorps or 18 week Buff Orpingtons, or 18 week old Black Stars. I've been told the Black Stars will be marked down in the breed classes because they aren't pure bred. Of course, they are the calmest! One boy has his heart set on the Australorp chick, but they are so wild! Any tips on teaching the girls to walk the runway? I've never even seen a chicken show, so I have no idea what it's supposed to look like. We've got 4 weeks to train these free ranging, wild women! Wish they would just let the boys show the roosters and enjoy themselves instead of making it a big, stressful production!
