Poultry

Sussex 4-H Poultry club members are engaged in activities that include identifying parts, species and breeds, selection, exploring an egg, cooking eggs, feather features, feeding, handling, washing and showing.

As they progress, club members will "test their wings" as they make a budget, determine pecking order, read a feed tag, explore retail products, identify bones, grade carcasses, select layers, use the Standard of Perfection, examine an egg and keep poultry healthy.

Advanced club members may develop leadership skills by planning a judging clinic, managing a flock, exploring careers, processing chickens, conducting poultry games and discussing values and ethics.

Our Sussex County Poultry Club is:
