Tonight, we attended mandatory 4H guidance meetings for both Poultry and Rabbit projects. The guidance meetings are for the County clubs (there are county clubs for each animal project that goes to fair) to present all pertinent info to families for the upcoming 4H year. It’s an administrative meeting, so kind of boring, but we got a lot of good info as this will be our first year taking a poultry project.
This year, in addition to our breed rabbit projects, S12 will be taking a rabbit doe and litter project (assuming we can find a mini rex black otter doe to mate with Umbreon, and that the mating is successful). And both girls are taking pullets, or a pair of hens 4-6 months of age at fair time. We are ordering Barred Rocks and Buff Orpingtons for our pullets. They should arrive mid-March.
