  1. Rabbit Tattooing Recommended

    April 08, 2015

    The Poultry and Rabbit Committee highly recommend the tattooing of all breeding and pet rabbit projects (market rabbits will be tattooed when checked in at the fair!). This should be done in the animals left ear. Many rabbit breeders have the tattooing tools along with rabbit committee members. 

  2. 2015 Poultry Resource Handbook Not Available

    April 08, 2015

    The new Poultry Handbook that was advertised to accompany the new Poultry Record book will not be completed until Fall 2015. The author had some health issue and could not complete the book for publication. This has now created a void in educational materials for the Poultry projects. To help this we have scanned and have available on our website the old books. These old books are to be utilized only for reference. The old books will not be accepted at skillathon, every 4-H member exhibiting poultry must purchase a new book to keep records.
