The Morgan County/Cullman County 4-H Chick Chain show

Special to the Enquirer

The Morgan County/Cullman County 4-H Chick Chain show was held Oct. 23 at the Moulton Lions Club Fairgrounds. Morgan County started the year with 27 participants and concluded with 17 youth bringing chickens to the show. Cullman County had six participants this year. Morgan County participants received four chickens from three different breeds: Silver Laced Wyandotte, Ameraucaca and Buff Orpington. The baby chicks arrived in mid-June and were about 19 weeks old by the show date. Each participant brought two pullets from one breed to the show to contend for prizes. Awards were given in three categories: Record Book, Showmanship and Breed Classes.
