SENECA CO., N.Y. — Seneca County 4-H is pleased to announce there is a new animal science club forming! The focus of the group will be poultry. The first meeting will be on Monday, April 22, 2019 at Seneca County Cornell Cooperative Extension Office in Waterloo (3rd floor Conference Room, Main Street Shop Centre) from 6 pm – 7:30 pm. The group is accepting new members to 4-H or youth who do not own chickens and/or other poultry, but are interested in learning about them. It is also open to youth already involved in 4-H who may or may not already own poultry.
The new club is being coordinated by 4-H Volunteer Leader, Donna Sheckler. Sheckler has been actively involved in various 4-H project areas, including poultry and is excited to share her knowledge and experiences with 4-H youth.
The club plans include learning about poultry as well as having fun with studying eggs. You can expect to learn about breeds and varieties of poultry, begin to understand genetics, biosecurity, and so much more. Youth can also become excited to participate in foods projects with eggs.
“Do you love chickens? Would you like to meet other chicken lovers? Or learn more? Come join us for activities, fun, and education.” shared Donna Sheckler, 4-H Volunteer.
If you are interested in participating in the Seneca County 4-H Poultry Club please contact 4-H Program Leader, Rachel Williams, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 315-539-9251. Contact the Seneca County 4-H Staff with any questions you have about joining 4-H.
