    Hi! My daughter wanted to show poultry this year at our county fair so we have purchased a few chickens to show. We just got them today! We have done a lot of reading to prepare ourselves to raise these birds. We live on a farm in N.E. Iowa we raise cattle, crops, and raise quarter horses.

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. How great that your daughter wants to get into showing chickens. If you put your state in the search box it will pop up and you can subscribe to it. Local bycers may be able to guilde you to shows etc. Would love to see photos of the birds you just received.

    Welcome! Hope that your chickens get acquainted with the blue ribbons. Fantastic!
    Did you get them as chicks, or are they started?
