    She is a RIR pullet im raising for the fair does she look like she'd do well? Also what are some of the requirements for fair chickens, like a certain weight or something?

    When is your fair?

    She is far too young to be shown and actually place, but it just depends on your show's rules and guidelines. There is not a minimum age requirement, however birds that are younger in age do not regularly place well compared to birds that are mature.

    You might want to consider entering the showmanship class if she is not mature enough to have a good chance at doing well in the breed class. This class showcases your knowledge of the bird's anatomy and her breed, your skill at handling her and her ease of handling. So you would be working as a team with your pullet.
