Starting to Show

Good evening everyone.

I hope we are all keeping well. Are the egg numbers beginning to rise?

I am hoping to get into showing this summer but I have 2 problems. One I dont know what breed to start out with? A dual purpose would be great but which is best suited to a novice like myself. My second problem is I don't have any experience.

would any of you kind people care to enlighten me as to your suggestions or advice?

Thank you in advance.

Hi MizzyFitzo.
If I were you I would find a breed that I would like to start showing.
You should choose a breed that doesnít have feathered feet because they are easier to look after.
If I were you I would probably stay away from white birds because it can be hard to get them nice and white for shows.
You should also try and choose a pure colour breed eg.black,red etc and not a bird with lacing etc because if you intend on breeding it is easier to get a good colour on the birds you breed because there is no lacing to perfect.
You should also Decide weather you want bantams or large fowl.

If you have any other questions feel free to ask me.

Fionn.
