Youth of all walks of life (urban and rural) are involved in the 4-H poultry program. The 4-H poultry projects are some of the most popular 4-H programs in Pennsylvania.
Project work is the backbone of the 4-H poultry program. Project areas are offered to youth 9 to 18 years old. Subjects include embryology, raising and rearing poultry, and poultry and egg consumer projects. These projects are what motivate youth to learn teamwork, develop interpersonal skills, build enthusiasm and enjoy challenges.
