Poultry Nutrition

Filed Under: Youth Poultry

Poultry Nutrition is for individuals with a backyard flock or young people with a 4-H/FFA project (including 4-H Cloverbuds). Poultry Nutrition will focus on the composition of a balanced diet for backyard flocks and why a balanced diet is important to meat-type, egg-type, and dual purpose birds.  Topics covered will include: importance of nutrition to backyard flocks, differences in nutritional needs of birds kept for different purposes, and commercial poultry and how they are not fed growth hormones in the diet.
