Although the birds are in cages, the 4-H Poultry Project members are 'flying high,' with over 165 birds on display in the County Fair Poultry Barn. 4-H members had ducks and turkeys and chickens in today's 4-H Poultry Show, judged by Rick Hare and Joel Henning. Mr. Henning not only judged the Showmanship Classes, but educated the youth and the crowd on the specific breed standards and many interesting facts about poultry and advice about caring for poultry. While judging the Poultry Show, Mr. Hare gave the youth the opportunity to hear educational comments about their birds while judging the quality of each bird.
