November 30th 2019 the Westman 4-H Poultry club attended the Purebred Pigeon and Poultry Show in Portage. Teagan Maddess of Deloraine is a member of the club. There the club also did their achievement and displayed not only their work from the year but also 3 chickens that they had raised from hatch-lings since spring 2019. At the show there were many adult entries and a handful of junior entries. The show consisted of many breeds of pigeons, ducks, geese and chickens.
Teagan's Golden Laced Wyandotte hen named Nugget won the BV - Best Variety, BB - Best Breed and the Champion RCCL - Rose Combed Clean Leg of the junior entries. She also went on to receive the Reserve Champion (2nd place) of Junior entries. It was a great learning experience and full of so many adults who loved sharing their knowledge and love of birds. It is safe to say Teagan will continue on with this 4-H club and her love of chickens. We encourage anyone in the area interested to join!
