Four County 4-H Poultry Show & Sale

— Written By

Four County 4-H Poultry Show & Sale Registration is now open!

Youth will learn how to raise poultry and will show their best 3 birds at the show & sale on October 26, 2019. Two new breeds are chosen each year, and this year the breeds are Rhode Island Red and Ameraucana. In late-April or early-May, participants will receive day-old chicks of the breed(s) they choose and will raise the birds until the Fall when the pullet chain ends with a show and the auction of 3 of the birds raised. Youth also create a project record book to track their progress and learn about record keeping. There will be cash prizes, trophies, and other awards, and the 4-Her receives half of the auction proceeds from the sale of their pullets. This is a wonderful first animal science project for a 4-Her as chickens grow very quickly-almost instant gratification – and the birds remain small enough for even the Cloverbuds to handle well. Please be sure to read the form as it contains important information, dates, and rules. Registration must be completed via the Google Form provided below.

If you have questions or need help registering, please contact Emily at 919-603-1350 or edrober2@ncsu.edu or Kim Woods at 919-603-1350 or kdwoods@ncsu.edu.

Cost is $20 per participant.

Registration is now open! Deadline to register is March 15.
