Raising market chickens through 4-H has taught my kids an immense amount of skills. They have learned to not only keep their chickens alive, but how to strategically make them thrive through care and diet. Through this 4-H endeavor they continue to grow in their ability to talk with a judge. And have learned how to put their best foot forward in competition. These lessons have been invaluable to my children's growth as people.
Spring/Summer of 2019 we raised turkeys for show at the county fair. The girls flipped a turkey half their weight to place first and second in their weight class. They missed the grand prize trophy by a pound! What a hoot!?
