Rabbits and Chickens

Lou Ann Jenkins, Thomas, Leslie C.

Attention 4-H'ers!!

Come out and enter the new 4-H Rabbit Show that will be held at the Parish Livestock Show Jan. 20-21, 2012, at the Ag Arena in Opelousas, La.  The show will be open to all 4-H'ers in St. Landry Parish. 

You can also begin ordering broiler chicks for 40 cents each.  This year you can show two pens of broilers, one pullet and one cockerel.  At about six weeks of age, you will pick your best pen of three to show. 

We recommend that you order 20-25 chicks if you plan on showing a trio at the poultry shows in January and February.   Pick up an order form at the extension office.  The orders are due to the extension office by Monday, Nov. 12, 2011.

Also, you could win a rabbit!

Come join us at the 4-H Fall Activity Day on Oct. 27, 2011, to be eligible to win a free rabbit!!
