Hi there I recently got into exhibition poultry because I have been given a chicken by a neighbor who’s son was in 4-H after they couldn’t keep it anymore. I was looking online at photos to compare this chicken and show quality ones and don’t really know what to look for. If you could give any pointers as to whether or not this chicken is show quality or not would be greatly appreciated. I have inserted pictures below, she is a white crested black polish hen about a year old or so. Thanks.

She also has muliti colored feet which I’m assuming is normal, but would that be considered a default for the breed standard?

I see faults for sure. Especially In the crest. Most 4H kids don't show good birds so... she might be the best chicken at your fair.
If you really want birds that are close to the standard, go to an APA show and talk to some breeders. Or even search for some on Facebook.
