Poultry Judging

What is Poultry Judging?

Poultry Judging teaches 4-H'ers how to judge live hens, grade eggs, grade ready to cook poultry, and identify poultry parts. It also provides experience in organizing thoughts and defending decisions with oral reasons. In this contest, 4-H'ers learn to rank laying hens based on standards and quality, 4-H'ers will evaluate the chickens and tell why they think one is better than the other.
