The 4-H Chick Chain project is designed to teach 4-H members recommended management practices for growing and raising chickens.
Congratulations to the Black Sex-Link Grand Champion winner from Woodland Elementary, John Daniel, and Red Sex-Link Grand Champion winner Kendall Hedrick, Homeschool. Congratulations also to the Black Sex-Link Reserve Champion from Homeschool, Toby Tucker and Red Sex-Link Reserve Grand Champion Jayden Shannon from West Side Elementary.
This year there were 19 participants which raised the chickens from April until October. Each member did an excellent job! We appreciate TJ Daniels implementing the auction and Dr. Kevin Downs with MTSU judging the birds. We appreciate the community support for this project and all money raised from the auction benefits the 4-H Chick Chain Program next year.
Cannon County Extension staff would like to thank the 4-H members, parents, volunteers, and buyers for making this year’s Chick Chain Show and Auction a huge success. If you would like to be added to the poultry buyer mailing list or for more information, call the UT Extension office at 615-563-2554.
