4-H Logo on a green chicken

The Chick Chain program is designed to allow 4-H members to learn how to not only care for and raise chickens, but it offers a taste of the poultry industry. Youth will learn about feedings, proper environment, health, predators, care, biosecurity, and other industry standards.

NC remains a top contributor in poultry production from pullets, broilers, and egg layers. The Chick Chain program allows youth to raise supplied chicks from 1-day old for 6-months. They will care for and work with these birds until the day of the show and auction. They will bring their best pullet/hen to the show and then have it up for auction. Money raised at the auction will then be used for college education tuition and/or future 4-H projects.
