    My birds will be 13 weeks old for fair. I think its too young. Do you think otherwise?


    Thanks

    Yeah, for me that would be a bit young. I usually show my youngsters when they are almost mature at around 6-8 months. If they are too young they can't be judged properly either as they are still developing and won't be at their best. I'd also keep in mind that you don't want to stress them too much at an early age as it may effect their feather development, health.

    Cheers,
