Attention Youth Exhibitors
All rules listed for the senior open show apply to youth exhibitors. Youth may enter birds in any of three categories: 1) You may enter birds in the youth show and compete only with other youth. 2) You may enter birds in the senior open show and compete against some of the top breeders in the country. 3) You may enter the showmanship competition and compete with others in your own age group. It is not mandatory to bring an extra bird for showmanship but it is strongly advised to do so. We will not stop judging the youth show if your bird is being used for showmanship at the time it could be judged in either of the other shows. For any youth not exhibiting in the youth or open show and competing in showmanship only, there is a fee of $5.00.
