Its not that difficult. Locally they pulliam test the birds before they are un loaded for the local county fair. In the 25 years I was a 4H leader I only had 2 members show chicks and only watched the chicken show twice. I have now been on the county fairboard for at least 10 years, both at the same time for a few years. This year my 2nd oldest son will try to show some chickens along with his market beef. We don't do bucket calves!!!!!!!!
We are. My daughter is the youth poultry leader this year This will be our first year showing. I am getting NPIP certified in April and will testing our flock since there is only 3 certified tested in the entire county. This year is just a practice run for us so we know all the ropes for next year. So far it looks like she will be showing our Ancona.
