Congratulations to the 4-H winner! I agree that there are a lot of nice folks in 4-H and they teach a lot of good values. I'm sure MANY of the people on this forum got their start in poultry through 4-H and FFA, including me. It's time for me to "pay back" a little. I'm hoping to be able to get more young folks around here started in poultry. My kids are all grown now, and several of them were involved with poultry as they were growing up. Any of the birds I sell will be discounted to 4-H'ers. I also intend to get certified in doing the pullorum testing and help out with poultry projects with the kids throughout the year. Someone asked me if I would consider judging their county poultry exhibit! I don't think I'm qualified to do that, but if push comes to shove I'll grab my SOP and do the best I can. From what I have seen around here there is a lot to learn at the very ground level.
