I want to begin to show birds and I am wandering what kind of breed is the best for showing?
Whatever you like. It isn't about what is easier or more able to win, it is about the enjoyment and love of the breed and showing. Also, it isn't the breed you have to worry about It is the quality.
So I could use my isa warren? That would make it so much easier cus she's my favourite lol
Quote:NO. ISA is not a breed.
Ilia assumed you meant a breed of chicken (as did I) and not a hybrid.
Yes, hatchery hybrids like CXs, Hubbards, ISAs, Shavers, etc. are not considered breeds, and don't hardly do well in shows up here in Canada, all the less down in America! Most people prefer to use true Breeds for showing, although if you have good looking hybrids, they should be showable.
I have a white leghorn so I'll take her.
Quote:Before showing a bird, I'd suggest the following:
1. Go to a Show and see how things are done.
2. Get a copy of the Standard for the breed you are showing to see what that breed should look like.
3. Check out a library book or look online for what is done to prep a bird for the show.
4. Check with the Show secretary (back to #1) concerning any testing that must be done prior to arriving at a Show.
Ok I will get a book or so and follow your suggestions
Thanks very much
Quote:I wish you well. Showing is great fun and you can really enjoy the whole experience. It just helps to be prepared.
