Looking for a Chicken for Ag Day?: Eureka Poultry Farm have offered to supply chickens to any student wanting to enter a chicken for Ag Day. This was a very successful category that was added to last years event. The chickens will cost $20.00 each to purchase and you must purchase 2 or more chickens, as they need company. However, students will only enter their best chicken for Ag Day. 

The organising committee need orders for chickens to be made before Wednesday 25th September. Please pay by cash, and complete the order form at the office as soon as possible. The chickens will need to be collected from the TCC on the last day of term, Friday 27th September. You will need a box to transport your chickens and we suggest that you bring along some cash on the day to purchase the chicken growth feed. The chickens will be 6 weeks old, so will be on growth feed and should not require any heat lamps. However you will still need to ensure that they are kept in a warm area.
