Poultry Experts Are Buying This DVD for Their Own Use!
Allison enlisted the help of experts from the American Poultry Association and the American Bantam Association to talk about both caring for chickens and showing poultry. To demonstrate youth showmanship, Allison taped Dr. Francine Bradley, one of the world’s most renowned chicken experts. Well known as the co-author of the National 4-H Guide to Poultry Showmanship, Dr. Bradley explains in simple, concrete, exact words how to begin and then win at poultry showmanship. To show exactly what Dr. Bradley describes, a range of prize-winning young competitors go through their paces in settings that any young person can easily see and then create at their own home. Detailed demonstrations by award-winning showmanship competitors teach also viewers how to choose, groom and train chickens to win at poultry showmanship events. Dr. Bradley also lists the most common novice mistakes and how to avoid them.
For the first time, this DVD offers all poultry show enthusiasts demonstrations of how to find, raise, train and prepare standard-bred chickens for showing. There are detailed, step-by-step demonstrations of grooming chickens for shows and interviews with nationally recognized APA judges describing exactly how they rank and judge standard-bred chickens at those shows.
Over two dozen nationally recognized Poultry Experts have recommended this DVD to their 4-H and FFA leaders.
