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 Auburn School, Caleb Powers, and Red Sex-Link Grand Champion that is Homeschooled, Kolton Hedrick. Congratulations also to the Black Sex-Link Reserve Champion from Short Mountain School, Alli Lawson and Red Sex-Link Reserve Grand Champion a Cannon County High School graduate, Chloe Dill. This year there were 17 participants which raised the chickens from April until October. Each member did an excellent job! We appreciate Cannon County High School Principal, Mike Jones and Emily Dill with Ms. Emily's Pet Boarding implementing the auction. Buyers were pleased with the two different breeds to bid on which increased the average sale price to $18 per bird. 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.
