    Hi! I have a little girl that is in 4H that is taking a Sizzle hen to the 4H fair. What do the judges look for? I thought you couldnt take a sizzle because she is a mix...is this a recognized breed? I want to give her some pointers.. but I have no idea about any of it.

    The Sizzle is not a recognized breed, or variety. At a county fair, the judge may ignore this, since most county fairs are more about the youth and how well they prepare their birds for show. He/She will probably look mostly at the condition of the bird (no damaged feathers, clean, etc.).However, the Sizzle can not be shown at an APA or ABA sanctioned poultry show, since it is a mix.

    Good luck at the fair!
