Chicken spa day and showmanship classes were the main focus for today’s 4-H Chick Chain Workshop organized by the Houston County Extension Office.
The chick chain show is an opportunity for high school and middle school students to learn more about raising chickens by letting them take home their own chicken to care for and eventually sell.
Today’s workshop showed them how to wash and care for their chickens.
Elizabeth Macaloney said,”Today we are learning how to wash chickens and get ready for showmanship.”
Participant John Jarker Dill had this to say “It’s good for the chicken because it will stay in one place and it will dry better.”
Drew Thompson said, “So we get the youth, we fill them with knowledge and ability. And try to give them development for their future.”
The participants that take their own chicken home with them will bring them back to sell during the national peanut festival.
