I started a 4-H club in our area last year, I had volunteered to be a poultry leader but the kids weren't interested. This year they are (course two of my kids in my group will actually be MY kids, lol). Anyway, I've never shown anything in 4-H or anywhere else. I realize that I can get help from other clubs' poultry leaders, but I was wondering if there was any good books out there. I found Your Chickens - A Kid's Guide to Raising and Showing in my McMurray catalogue. It looks good. I'm going to the feed store tomorrow, so I'll look for it there. The other thing is that my daughter really wants Japenese Bantams. Would that be a good breed? Or would another be better for her, she is 8 and afraid of the larger chickens and after seeing some bantams at the fair this year has decided she wants "the little ones" and to add the short leggs of the Japanese, she's in love! What do you all think?
