Hi,
I am considering entering the Orange County Fair with my 2 pullets I recently got. I was wondering if I will be required to auction them off at the end, because I don't want to get rid of them because they're my pets

I haven't been to that fair, but generally, the fair provides the display cages. You will need some sort of carrier to get your birds there and then back home.

The auctions are only for 4-H and FFA. Also, the auctions are for their market class animals. (If you are in 4-H, ask your 4-H leader about the auctions).

The fair does not require you to auction off your animals. I showed there for many years, and on occasion, we would make other arrangements. But what are you going to do with your chicken after the fair? If it's a meat breed, it's probably going to die a more horrible death than if you just had it slaughtered. I don't know if any independent youths are allowed to show at that fair though. Usually just 4-H and FFA
