4-H Pullet Project Workshop Series

The purpose of the 4-H pullet project workshop series is to encourage youth to participate in the pullet project, specifically showing and selling commercial laying hens at the Greater Jacksonville Fair. Youth will develop life skills such as communication, record keeping, and self motivation. These workshops will help prepare and educate youth in a variety of topic areas such as completing a record book and how to speak with buyers.

How to Complete a Record Book – February 7th at 6:00pm

How many times have you worked with youth on their record books and you heard, “This is too hard” or “This is going to take forever to finish”? This workshop will give youth tips on how to complete a record book and what it takes to win that blue ribbon!

How to Care for Chicks – March 7th at 6:00pm

This workshop will teach youth how to create a brooder box, how to keep chicks healthy as they grow, and bio-safety requirements.

How to Show and Work with Poultry (Mandatory Meeting) – May 23rd at 6:00pm

Youth must bring their 5 chickens with them. Since the youth will have their chickens at the workshop, this will give them the opportunity to work with their birds. Showmanship concentrates on the youth’s ability to demonstrate their knowledge of handling, posing, and examining the bird.

How to Communicate and Write a Buyers Letter – August 15th at 6:00pm

It is important for youth to develop communication skills. This workshop teaches youth how to properly format a buyers letter and how to speak with a potential buyer.
