The 4-H Chick Chain project allows 4th-12th grade 4-H’ers to gain skills in responsibility and management by raising baby chicks into layer hens. 4-H members who sign a contract for this project will receive a minimum of 12 two-day-old chicks to raise in the spring. The cost is $3 per bird. Three quality pullets will be returned to the County Poultry Show and Sale this fall.
Barred Rock and Buff Orpington are the breeds available to purchase this year. You must purchase at least 7 of one breed.
