    I'm looking at getting some Pearl White Leghorns from someone in town to show in the egg laying category for my last year in 4H. I'm more of a Silkie person so I don't know what I'm looking for. They were born March 20th, 2010. Should I be looking for larger, redder combs or smaller, lighter combs. And what should their tails look like?

    Thanks!

    Quote:combs should be large and a little tiped to the side, but i've never shown birds, maybe some one with show experience would help out here. Bump
