    Chicken Program

    Chickens are popular with residents of Davis County. Many families now raise backyard chickens for the benefits of fresh eggs, being self sustainable, and providing an avenue of responsibility for their children.

    Youth that have chickens are able to exhibit and participate in a chicken show at the Davis County Fair in August. Youth ages 5 to 18 can bring their chickens to the fair and have them judged in the cage as well as participate in a poultry showmanship class/show.

    Poultry showmanship clinics will be taught this summer to teach youth how to present and show their birds as well as information on nutrition, diseases, and production.
