    I'm hoping to show some chickens in 4H, but there's one problem; I don't know how!! What are some things that I need to do, and how would one go about doing those things? What specific qualities do my hens (I can't have roosters) need to have? How would I present them to the judge?

    I have 2 barred rocks and 2 silver spangled hamburgs. I will be getting some Buff Orpingtons, Easter Eggers, Polish hens, Columbian Wyandottes, Light Brahmas and Black Austrolorps in a couple of weeks. Which ones could I show, providing that they're well conformed?

    Each 4H is set up differently, sometimes even in the same state. I’d talk to your county extension agent who should be involved in local 4H and fine out who is running the show part, then talk to them. You should be able to get your questions answered there. That information will be specific to your show.
