The purpose of this activity is to give the 4-H’ers the opportunity and experience to learn about the care of chickens and to raise baby chicks for layers or broilers (this is intended to be a agricultural project, not a pet project). 4-H’ers can have fun taking care of their chickens and other family members will enjoy the good tasting and nutritious food they produce. This activity will help each
4-H’er to develop poultry management skills, produce healthy chickens, develop an awareness for business management through keeping records of costs and income, contribute to your home food supply, and to realize the pride of accomplishment they have achieved.
