It's up to the local people who run each 4h chapter.
They almost didn't even have a show chicken thing this year, the person running it, is doing it like the county fair, following specific rules, i.e. meat birds, everyone has to order 25 birds. etc.
Which makes it hard for people to participate who live in the city and are only allowed 4 hens and no roo's.
I was able to talk them into letting my daughter show whatever bird she wanted, since she's a clover - but we won't be doing chicken 4h, if they only do meat birds and we can't show other birds next year. We'll go to goats.
Ah, I see. I've never been involved with 4h, but had several people contact me this year for birds for 4h use.
How many goats do you have?
