Twenty-five 4-H members from across Polk County started their poultry project last spring when they received 12 baby chicks provided by the Polk County 4-H Clubs.
The 4-H members have been responsible for the care of the chicks and will bring three pullets to the show and compete for Grand Champion 4-H pullet. Other awards will also be given.
After the show the 75 pullets will be auctioned off with the money going to the 4-H clubs.
The 4-H members in the project have worked hard this past summer rasing their pullets for this Saturday’s Show.
The pullets, which are back sex link pullets, are good layers and will produce high quality farm fresh eggs for many years.
The Polk County 4-H Office encourages everyone interested in purchasing pullets to come to the show and sale.
The Polk County 4-H Program is open at all youth ages 9 to 19.
