    Well, I think it really depends on what you like. Flashy tends to do well in 4H and you can't get flashier than the Sebastapols with their curly feathers. Chinese are so elegant. And I think Africans have an unmatched majesty.

    I think it would be harder to show Sebastopols.
    Most 4-H judges aren't familar with unusual breeds
    and it throws them off plus it would be very pricey
    to come up with a SQ Seb.
    I think American Buffs would be a nice breed for a 4-H'er because they are more calm and easy to handle.
