Fourteen-year-old Keri Moore of Meridian, Miss., shows off "Dolly," a 17-week old rose comb brown leghorn hen, Friday, Sept. 18, 2015, that earned a grand champion place in the layers division and a first place in senior showmanship at the 4-H competition of the Lauderdale County Fair. Moore had hoped to bring six of her chickens to compete, but the state fair officials mindful of the deadly bird flu virus that devastated flocks in the Midwest, are limiting the contestants to a single bird for the showmanship and meat contests and are requiring the 200 expected exhibitors to use photo boards and record books to show off the flocks
