I wanted to let you know that our local 4-H Club, Cooped Up in Seattle, is
hosting our third annual club Poultry Show on Saturday, June 1, from 10 AM-noon. It’s co-sponsored by Seattle Tilth, and will be held in the Tilth Children’s Garden at the Good Shepherd Center (4649 Sunnyside Avenue N).
4-H’ers from our club and other clubs in King County will enter in three
- Fit and Show: Kids compete in their knowledge, handling, and preparation of their birds. You’ll see 4-H’ers present their birds to a judge and answer questions.
- Judging: A test of 4-H’ers ability to compare and evaluate animals or items related to raising poultry (such as comparing actual chickens, or comparing equipment).
- Posters: Informational and educational posters having to do with poultry.
There will also be an information booth and a petting table with chickens
and rabbits. People should stop by to see what our 4-H Club is up to and
to see some kids who know a lot about chickens. If you have any questions
about the show or the club in general, please feel free to contact me at
