Please join the poultry remind text group! Text @chickens16 to 81010
Friends & Family of the Plano FFA Membership
**Highly Recommended**Students will show their pen of 3 chickens at the Collin County Junior Livestock Show in January. If the students are to place in the top third they will make "sale". If the student makes sale they will need a buyer to purchase their animal. Friends and Family will be their buyer. Friends and Family has a meeting on 10/29. Contact Rhonda Kaschmitter firstname.lastname@example.org about joining. You must join before November 1st.
Below you will find pictures of the supplies you will need for your poultry project. There are several vendors that you can purchase the items from. I would suggest to call to see if they have items in stock before you go.
Princeton Ag Supply
D&L Ag Mart-McKinney
Purina Turkey Starter
Wells Brothers sells this feed. (It may have a different name)
Purina Broiler Grower
You will feed this after we are done with 1 bag of Turkey starter. You will use 3-4 sacks of this. I would recommend only purchasing 1 or 2 bags to start with so it will be fresh when you are ready to feed. (It may have a different name)
Bag of Sugar
We will add this to the water to make them want to drink more. Can buy at Walmart.
Package of Deuromycin
1 Bucket of High Octane Power Fuel
1 Bucket of High Octane Champion Drive
Start saving now. We will mix it in with the feed when they get older.
