poultry chicks

Would you like to have your own flock of chickens? Here is the opportunity you are looking for. In April, we will start the 2022 4-H Poultry Project – for Ages 5-18.

Please check out the following details:

  • Start with the Poultry 101 School on Saturday April 2nd from 10 – 12:00 and learn what you need to know about how to raise and show chickens.
  • In mid-April you will receive 3 Golden Comet hens and a 25lb bag of chick starter feed.
  • Throughout the summer, we will check in with you as you raise your chicks.
  • Shows – your chicks will be ready to show at our local fall fairs such as the Macon County Fair, Mountain State Fair and Swain County Fair.
  • Look for your hens to be ready to lay eggs around September or October.

Cost: $15 per youth
