    Oh in our chapter we have about 6 different variates and about 30 chickens in total. They are the chapters chickens. We use our chickens for eggs, and we sell them to teachers and staff for $2 a dozen:)

    I'm in our county's FFA. Our chapter foucuses more around market animals so the only chickens we regularly do are broilers [​IMG]
    My friend and I show our "fancy" birds though, we are the only ones in our whole chapter that do! Our chapter focuses mainly on sheep, swine, and cattle.

    In my FFA, you can do meat birds, but it isn't very popular. Only me and one other girl are raising them this year, and we are working through my sister's 4-h leader. Additionally, I am the only one in my FFA showing a dairy goat as a "breeding project"; also through my sister's 4-h leader. Everyone else does sheep, steer, and pigs. They all show large market animals.
