Children are our greatest asset and as grandparents, Bill & I try to keep our grandchildren involved at our farm. There's noting better than seeing the look on their faces when they place at the fair or a show and win that ribbon or trophy!! Children are the next generation of this great hobby we all have. I try to help out with local 4H or FFA clubs in my area, whether offering exhibition stock or giving presentations on poultry. Bill & I are always willing to help out the kids! Below are some groups I have visited with some wonderful leaders, parents and kids!
I got an email from Mary Schmidt (Altoona Eagles 4H) Altoona, Florida interested in purchasing some Silkies. I was happy to donate a beautiful pair of White Silkies and a trio of Splash Old English to their 4H group at school. The kids sent me beautiful letters and a picture of themselves with their new 4H birds. Hope you do well with them kids!!!! Keep me posted!
