The 4-H Poultry educational program and related activities (such as workshops, tours, etc.) provide youth a fun and hands-on learning experience which develops both poultry subject skills (such as nutrition, housing, and health care) and life skills (such as responsibility, decision-making, nurturing, and communications).
