My daughter is 10 and is in love with our chickens. She would love to join a local 4-H group and have a couple of “show” chickens. My daughter loves our Easter Eggers and specifically one pullet who is gorgeous but I have told her that as much as she loves them they aren’t show birds because they are the “mutts” of the chicken world. I am looking for breed suggestions for show birds that would be easy for a child to work with. I don’t know enough about breed standards but once we choose a breed I am willing to dive in and figure all of that out. Would Ameraucanas be a good choice? Cream Legbar? Marans? Faverolles? Is it best to obtain birds from breeders rather than hatcheries for showing? I really like the looks of Faverolles but haven’t seen any available locally so would have to order those from somewhere. Can you get birds that are decent quality from hatcheries? There are farms/breeders for Ameraucanas, Cream Legbars & Marans locally. We live in Eastern Washington and have pretty balanced weather so only really hot in the 100’s for a week or two tops usually 80’s-90’s. In the winter we do get snow and days that are in the 0’s occasionally but mostly 30’s when it is cold. We do have radiant heaters for the coop to keep them from getting too cold. I do plan on talking to adults and kids from the local club we are thinking about having her join at the local fair this fall. I figure they would be able to help with some advice.
