As a continuation of the 2020 Southeast Regional Chicken Project, program coordinators created a new contest for 4-Hers with flocks of chickens that were currently laying eggs. The Inaugural EGG-cellent Egg Contest had over 25 contestants participate. The contest assessed the ability of youth to raise chickens that produced high-quality eggs. Contestants submitted their eggs on November 9th. Agents transported the eggs to Raleigh where they were judged on uniformity of appearance and consistency of interior quality. Judges used the same testing measures applied in commercial poultry production. To evaluate participants knowledge and creativity, supplemental projects for each age group were also submitted and judged. Supplemental projects focused on the commercial egg industry, the life cycle of chickens, egg nutrition, parts of the egg, poultry housing, egg quality and more. Montgomery County had 7 participants representing us:  Madilynn Bowles, Elijah Farlow, Joel Farlow, Emma Haynes, Lilly Haynes, Jillian Haywood and Sophia Haywood. Collectively, the group garnered 2 Cloverbud Participations, 3 Junior Division Second Places, 1 Intermediate Division First Place and 1 Intermediate Division Second Place.
