The 4-H poultry project is organized to provide experience for young people in the selection, feeding, husbandry, and exhibiting of poultry. Handling a live animal, watching it grow for several months and exhibiting the animal has value far beyond the monetary gain which is possible from the project. This fact should be kept in mind by the 4-H Club Member at all times.
Poultry refers to all the birds we raise for meat, eggs or show. 4-H Poultry project options are chickens, turkeys, ducks, and geese.
