A few chickens thinking they are all that.

4-H Laying Flock Project

******************************

NOTE: The 4-H Laying Flock Project has transitioned to a state level project rather than a Regional project. To access all current information, as well as links to register, follow this link to the South Carolina 4-H Poultry Page

Overview

The 4-H Laying Flock Project is designed for youth that already have chickens at home and are not interested in raising new birds from 4-H this year. Participants in this project have the same opportunities to show as those in the 4-H Pullet Chain.  

Guidelines

  • Age Divisions:
    • Cloverbud, 5-8 years of age
    • Junior, 9-13 years of age
    • Senior, 14-18 years of age
  • Each youth will receive a project record book that must be completed and turned in to their local 4-H Agent in the Fall. Books will be judged locally and returned to the youth in November.
  • Youth are expected to show in a minimum of one showmanship opportunity during the project year. The Show season begins near the end of August and continues through October. There are currently plans for many shows across the state. There should be one close to you. Show dates and venues will be announced by late summer
