    I was planning on doing showmanship (ages15-18) at the Ohio National show this November, and was wondering if anyone has seen or done it before? Like what to wear specifically, and anything special I need to know. I won senior showmanship in 4h this year, so I know what to expect as far as questions go [​IMG]

    Did you get the show program because it should state on what to wear? Also just make sure your chicken is fit really well. Good Luck!

    It should be on the website, i looked and it just said the age breakdowns. So you should wear a White Shirt with Black Pants or Skirt. Also if you are showing your birds in the breed showing then bring another bird for showmanship, because if your in the middle of showing and your bird isn't in it's cage it won't be judged.

    Yeah I founda pic on their website from 2009 with most kids just wearing a white jacket, so thats probably what I'll do. Also, one last question: do you know if they will ask for the bird walk?
