Small Animals Projects

Below are resources for youth interested in Poultry, Rabbit and other small animal Projects. We appreciate your patience as more resources are being accumulated for this page. If nothing is listed for your project, that means we are still in the process!


Come join us at the next Coulee Region Poultry Club meeting! Ken Feed will be there to give a 30-45 minute educational class on feeding poultry.
Where: Town of Gale Town Hall (20037 Gibson St., Galesville, WI 54630)
