Richmond County 4-Hers show off hens at annual chicken show Russell Parker - Richmond Observer

ROCKINGHAM — There were chickens by the dozens at Tractor Supply for the annual Richmond County 4-H Chicken Show on Friday, May 17.

The event featured a variety of chickens with children of all ages participating. There were different categories, some where a judge would ask questions to the participants about their hen, testing their knowledge on a particular breed.

Other categories were for best chicken in their breed. A judge looked over a number of aspects such as feathers, beaks, feet, and how healthy the chickens were to determine the best in show.

The crowd applauded while everyone received a green ribbon in the show. First, second, and third place in each category took home a ribbon.
