Sampson 4-Her Cameron Vann shows off his Barred Rock hen, and the Sampson County 4-H would like to invite other youth to experience the fun of a small animal project by participating in its upcoming multi-county Chick Chain. For a small fee, participants will receive 10 chicks. Six months later three of those chicks will be entered into a show and auction. Youth will receive ribbons, premium money, and sale money. A portion of the sales will go towards a new project for 4-H’ers the following year. This is a great opportunity to start a small animal project with the help of your local Extension Office, 4-H officials said. For more information, call the Sampson County 4-H office at 910-592-7161.
