Avery Mitchell Yancey 4-H Chicken Project

— Written By

Michelle South the Live Stock Agent for Mitchell and Avery has graciously allowed us to participate in this introductory program. Students will receive two chicks to raise. They may be a small cost for the program about $5 or $10 dollars. We will have two workdays on how to handle and show your chicken and how to wash them! These dates will be set soon.

4-Hers will show their chick at the Avery County Fair! They can auction off their chicken and get the money or they may elect to keep the chicken.
Families will need to have a place for the two chicks a coop, commit to buying feed, and caring for the birds.
More information on backyard chickens can be found in our Keeping Garden Chickens in North Carolina publication.

If you are interested please email me directly.
