Shelby County Fur & Feathers 4-H Club

 

More and more 4-Hers are raising chickens and rabbits for their livestock projects. Chickens and rabbits can be kept in small spaces, do not require a substantial financial investment and are easily handled by nearly anyone. Shelby County’s 4-H Fur & Feathers Club is for 4-Hers who want to learn how to properly care for their chickens and rabbits. While the focus is on proper care, some members also show their animals at county and state fairs. Over the years, Shelby County 4-Hers have won hundreds of ribbons and trophies showing their animals, including winning Best in Show in both poultry and rabbit shows at last year’s state fair. Fur & Feathers meet on the second Monday of every month except December (We gather for the Achievement Banquet) and July and August. We meet at 7 p.m. at the Extension office. For more information, contact Walt Reichert at Extension, 633-4593.
