I have no idea who you have met. I know there this there is good honest breeders out that will same as they show. When I sell fowl it was the same as I showed. I can not show in the USA anymore so I can sell a little more. I know at least 5 people who sell same as they show. 1 old man I am real good friends and he has been raising fowl for around 60 years. The others if you live far enough away from them they will sell you exact same as they show. Sometimes the trick is order after they closed down their breedings and just buy eggs or chicks from their top 5 brood pens. I have done that with great results. I have also driven 24 hours 1 way to personally pick out fowl. This is a gentleman's sport in the USA when it was legal. There where several people willing to help anybody that will listen.
If that is what you truly believe then I feel sorry for you. Maybe it is the type of people you associate with or maybe it is the type you personally want to be. I will admit there is some that will just screw you over. That is the ones that have been afflicted with greed. Sooner or later you will meet some honest breeders who will change your mind. Until that day comes I wish you luck because, you will never know what the sport is about until then.
