This year’s Reserve Champion of the Illinois Red Hill Bantham Club Poultry Show went to Izzy Nowell of the Gulf Islands Secondary School. Nowell first entered poultry at the 2014 Salt Spring Fall Fair and has continued to improve her flock and knowledge of the breeds she shows. In addition to winning the Junior and Grand Open champion titles, she also took home the Reserve Waterfowl titles for her white Serama pullet and one Rhode Island Red bantam hen.

A virtual format has been implemented for 4-H junior poultry shows this season in Illinois. IDOA officials are making the transition to a virtual format in order to avoid the risk of avian influenza. This highly contagious bird flu strain has been responsible for thousands of animal deaths in Illinois and the rest of the United States.
The virtual format is used at many county fairs for youth shows and will continue through the entire county fair season. The youth exhibitors present their projects through posters and virtual exhibits. This format is also useful for the 4-H junior poultry show, where there are many young people participating. This format also allows the 4-H youth to show their project to the judges and get a rating.
