The Warren County 4-H Chick Chain Sale raised $2,500 for continuation of the program.
The sounds of an auction bellowed from Warren County A&L Fair’s livestock barn Monday evening as bidders sought to acquire the Buff Orpington chickens raised by local 4-H’ers during the 2021 Chick Chain.
“Our auction brought in over $2,500,” said Emily Mote, UT-TSU Extension of Warren County. “We are pleased with the outcome of this year’s auction. These funds will support the 2022 4-H Chick Chain project.”
Chick Chain is a program designed to help youth learn how to raise baby chicks into mature production pullets. The sale ensures funds exist to purchase chicks in 2022.
Along with the involvement of youngsters, community support is a must.
“I am very appreciative of our community’s continued support of the 4-H Chick Chain Program and the Warren County 4-H Program as a whole,” said Mote. “I would like to thank Prater Realty and Auction and Wes Williams for volunteering their services during the auction. And a special thanks to the Warren County A&L Fair Board for allowing us to hold our Chick Chain Show and Sale during the fair.”
This year, 50 4-H members participated.
