    We are looking for anyone in or near Monticello, Drew County, Arkansas that is interested in a causual poultry club. Goal is to promote backyard and exhibition poultry in our area, promote youth projects (i.e.: 4H, FFA) and to assist others in starting their own backyard flock. Adjoining counties like Ashley, Bradley, Desha and Lincoln would be included.

    This week I picked up a set of the 4H Poultry Project books. Cost for 5
    books was $11.50. It includes:

    Poultry 1: Scratching the Surface

    Poultry 2: Testing our Wings

    Poultry 3: Flocking Together

    Poultry Group Activity Guide

    National 4H Poultry Judging

    Each 4H member will need their own set. We should know something soon on the
    final approval for a 4H poultry project club. Meanwhile, I am starting my
    children on the books. It is suggested that each parent call the Drew County
    Extension office and request a set. If you would like to purchase a set for a
    youth let me know or go ahead and purchase a set and drop off with me. Lets do
    all we can to help our youth!

    FYI: We had our organizational 4H poultry club meeting this past Tuesday. Had 7 children and about a dozen adults. A great start! If you know of anyone interested in poultry and are in or near Drew County, Arkansas please join us!
