    Does anyone know a website that will give me all of the info for show quality birds? We are thinking of showing Rose for 4-H next year, and some open shows locally this fall.

    If we have not got any show quality birds.. then I will need to find one!

    thanks!

    I'd suggest getting a Standard of Perfection. It has the standards for all the breeds recognized by the APA. You can also check the RIR club and see if they have a standard on their site.

    Usually, when showing in a fair, the birds competing will not be SQ, and many will even be mixed. SQ RIRs can be quite hard to find.

    Good luck [​IMG]

    You can go to Feathersite and it has the link under RIR for the Breed club. Has standard and Breeder list on there.

    Thanks everyone!!!

    I did a google earlier, but thought it would be easier just to ask in here where to go! [​IMG]

    For all I know, Rose might even be a productions RIR..

    Looked at your website-if that's the Red in question he's a production type Red

    Show quality will be much larger and deeper mahogany color.
    These are my three girls at 1 1/2 months old, April, May and June are their names.

    I am finally coming to the realization... well, the admittance, that Rose is a him. His legs are thick and he just seems rooish.

    So far he is a sweetie pie.

    Man.... this is going to be an issue with little bantam hen Midnight and perky Rusty the roo.
