My daughter has decided she would like to take a chicken to the fair this year through 4H. I ordered a book on standards of perfection (and a book on chicken diseases) and it will come soon. I really have no idea about showing anything. And to add to it, her grandma (my mom) has decided she will pay for a nice breed of chicken that my daughter can train to be in a cage and sit nice and be pretty or whatever it is they need to do! I just have no idea what to do. What's a good beginner's choice for a young 7 year old? I don't expect first place ribbons or anything but I want to at least give her a chance to participate because I think learning about all kinds of animals is important and I truly enjoy the backyard girls but pretty much everything I have is a mixed breed. What to do?!
