    I'm posting pictures of the four chickens I'm going to be showing this weekend at a chicken show. Please let me know what you think of them. I'd like positive and negative comments if you have any. I know, most people wouldn't want negative comments, but it could help.

    Buff Orpington (I wish she would've stood up taller when I took this. She was kinda freaked by the camera.):

    I think they're beautiful! Especially your little BO. But then, I don't know the first darn thing about showing chickens, so my opinion is utterly useless! [​IMG]

    What kind of feedback are you looking for? What kind of chicken show? I mean ... do you need to show according to the SOP ?
     
  7. I have only one NJG hen and three black Austros hens. They are the biggest butted hens in the flock and gorgeous.

    I'm going to be showing in the Gold Coast Poultry Fancier's Show here in CA for the first time. I've only ever showed chickens at the county fair. This will also be my first time showing as an adult. I have no clue what the standards are and such. So I guess I'm just wondering if the birds look good to you guys.
