    Hi there! my daughter had just joined a 4-H club and she really wants to show her three favorite chickens and i was wondering if there not too bad-looking, a wyandotte, light brahma, and a little white crested black polish hen

    With 4H showing, what the bird looks like doesn't really matter. It's not the bird that is being judged. I've seen Wyandottes entered as Barred Rocks and they won. That said, the Polish is the one with the fewest number of obvious faults, and the Brahma has the most faults.

    The first silver laced is gorgeous! But personally I don't like rose combs but others might. They are well kept! Clean!
    The light brahma is very nice, a little spotty on the top but that's alright.
    Your Polish is very clean and impressive, the afro spotting is a little off key but gorgeous anyway, the "hair" is very spherical which is perfect for show!

    For 4-H they'll be fine. They are basically the same quality everyone else is going to be showing. the important thing is she has fun and learns about her birds.
