    I currently own a black-breasted red modern-game bantom and a wheaten modern-game bantom, and they have each been on two comps. i'm entering them into their second this Easter. I'd just been thinking (always a dangerous thing to do...!) and just wondering what the best breed is for comp.

    the best breed for competion is a bird that fits their breed standard. as far as showmanship, it could be anything, main thing is make sure it's used to being handled and calm, they show better.
