Amador County Avian Bowl Team Wins 2022 Junior Championship


Saturday, February 26 marked the first time the California 4-H Avian Bowl hosted a team from Amador County. This event was created in 1989 and has been held nearly every year since, alongside a spectacular poultry show in Fresno, CA.
Amador County was well represented by their junior team, High Eggspectations, consisting of Cecilia O’Geen (Mountain Ranch 4-H Club), Lexi Himmel and Lily Himmel (both of Blue Ribbon 4-H Club) and coach Dr. Kelsi Williams.
This fast-paced, intense competition required months of game preparation through studying poultry terminology, diseases, breeds and much more. High Eggspectations won each of their four rounds leading them to become the 2022 California State Avian Bowl Junior Champions! The senior champion team will go on to represent California at the National 4-H Poultry and Egg Conference in Louisville, Kentucky this summer.
If you know youth that love chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys or game birds and would be interested in being a part of this and other wonderful poultry events please see the Amador County 4-H website for details on joining today.
