    This is my son's 3rd year in 4H. He has had some sucess previously but he wanted to "win some hardware". He got his wish:


    This is the Grand Champion Exhibition Bird in our county this year, he looks a little rough in the picture,he has been jostled around for 10+hours by this point. And it the "hardware" will fit nicely into this line:


    Incidently when you are 11 a win in the county is equal to a world championship and is "way more important than any of the trophies my sisters won"

    I know exactly how your son feels! On Saturday my black rosecomb hen won Reserve Grand Champion of Show. She got beat by a bantam white leghorn. Those lil birds are tough to beat!
