​​​​​​​Growing Broilers for the East Texas Poultry Festival

Broilers are meat type chickens usually about 6 to 7 weeks of age when ready for processing.  The 4-H broiler project is a very popular youth project.  Their popularity is because the projects are shorter in length, require less space, and are less expensive than many other 4-H livestock projects.
