The Richmond County 4-H Poultry Show was held Saturday, June 11 at the fairgrounds in Hamlet. Thanks to the Hamlet Lion’s Club, participants and their families were able to hold their birds in the livestock barn, out of the elements. The 4-H Poultry Show is the culminating event for kids that participated in the poultry project. From February to June, participants raised their chickens with the goal to be the healthiest and most structurally sound bird in its class. Throughout the spring, youth attended 5 classes at the Extension Office to learn about poultry breeds, poultry diseases, how to raise chickens, complete their project record book, and how prepare for the show.
