We are now only counting in the score a birds longest beard.  Years before it was all beards.  I personally do not like the change, but very much understand it.  We just need to remember that the only beard that will count is the longest.

Copied from rules:
only the longest beard of a multi bearded gobbler will be scored for the Team contest this is a subject of controversy, there may be a separate Individual non typical (not team) contest gobblers may be scored in both but in the team contest only the longest beard or spur on each leg

Also highlighted in the thread of the 2021 rules.
