4-H Chick Chain: Essential Elements for a Successful Program

The 4-H Chick Chain is a chicken-raising program that teaches youth how to raise laying hens from chicks.The 4-H Chick Chain Program has taken off in popularity across the country. It started in Alabama and the number one question that most 4-H Agents ask is how to conduct the program. In this presentation we will give an overview of the essential parts of the 4-H Chick Chain program to maximize impact among participants. Many new county agents or 4-H agents that participate in the program do not realize what all the moving parts are and may become overwhelmed. This can result in a truncated program or poorly executed program that does not yield the educational and life-skill building experiences that are built-in to the curriculum.   This introductory webinar is designed to discuss the basics to help you decide what resources you need to get started.
