The State 4-H Poultry Palooza is designed for young people aged 9 to 19.
It is mandatory for all 4-H’ers showing Poultry (chickens, waterfowl, turkeys) to attend one Poultry meeting.
This MSU pre-college program gives young people a chance to experience college life, learn new ideas and skills, and meet people from across Michigan.
Why did the chicken cross the road? To get to a gentleman on the other side. When the chicken asked, “What’s your name?” the gentleman replied, “Bond. James Bond. What’s yours?” The chicken responded, “Ken. Chic Ken.”
Seriously, if you’ve ever pondered the question of which came first, the chicken or the egg, you’ll have the chance to try to discover the answer when you participate in a 4-H poultry project. If chickens aren’t your style, you could try turkeys, ducks, geese, pheasants, pigeons or coturnix (Japanese quail).
Come on! Don’t be a chicken! Be a good egg and give it a try!
