2014 Sevier County 4-H Chick Chain Winners Announced

The Sevier County 4-H Poultry Show was held recently, at the Sevier County Fairgrounds, in Sevierville. The event highlighted the year for 4-H’ers participating in the 4-H Chick Chain Project.

Hannah Allen, Catons Chapel Elementary School, exhibited the Grand Champion Pen of Pullets. Hailey Carmichael, Sevier County High School exhibited the Reserve Champion Pen and Shelby and Hailey Carmichael received the award for the Best Set of 4-H Poultry Records. They also each received $15.00 premium money.

Other 4-H members participating in the Chick Chain this year included: Connor Braswell, Homeschool Club; Kat Brickle, Catons Chapel; Breanna Brouhard, Pigeon Forge High School; and Giovanna Myers, Northview Intermediate.

The Chick Chain is one of several livestock opportunities available to 4-H members, in Sevier County. 4-H Livestock projects help young people develop responsibility, a valuable life skill that adds to the potential for adult success. The Chick Chain gives young people the opportunity to purchase and raise 25 baby chicks for laying hens. The project begins, in March and culminates in September, with the county show, where 4-H members enter a pen of three hens. Pens are judged on growth and egg laying quality. Orders for the Chick Chain participants, for 2015, will begin in January. If you need more information, about the 4-H Chick Chain Project, please contact Glenn K Turner, at the University of Tennessee Extension, at 453-3695.
