    Im a junior in high school and I have three beutiful hens. I really want to get involved in FFA and 4-h but I have no idea how to go about it. My parents have no clue either. (im in RI)

    Could anyone help me find some info online?

    I'd suggest calling your local high school to see if they have an Ag teacher. If so, he/she will know all about 4H. If not, call city hall or the Chamber of Commerce and ask for the name and number of the local County Extension Agent.

    Good luck!

    PS: 4H is a big deal around here. So big that the schools shut down when the County Fair takes place, because so many kids are showing animals (horses, pigs, cows, goats, turkeys, rabbits, and chickens).

    You should be able to find the info online, or call your local extension office. The extension office is usually found in your county offices.

    I just did a quick search and found this link http://www.uri.edu/coopext/4H/ I would start there!

    My girls are going to be showing chickens in the fair this year. You may want to Google FFA or 4-H groups in RI. Good luck!

    Contact the Extension office and ask them if they can tell you which local 4-H Clubs have a Poultry Group in their club. They should be able to provide you with a contact for the club/group. Have fun!
