NC State Youth Market Turkey Show

Turkeys! Turkey! Turkeys!

Every year NCSU has a Youth Market Turkey Show at the NC State Fair, and… they give away Turkeys to youth participants!!! The 2017 Show will be held at the NC State Fair, Oct. 13th. NCSU will give away turkey poults to 250 youth who register and pay the 10 dollar participation fee. Youth can receive up to 3 banded turkey poults.

Here’s how it works!

NCSU will give away Turkey hen poults to the first 250 youth who register and pay the ten dollar participation fee. (This Fee is for participation, not for the poults.)
Each youth may register for 1-3 banded turkey poults.
But, only one turkey may be shown. Poults that are not shown are kept by participants.

Any NC Youth age 5-18 who will be in K-12 on Oct. 13th of 2017 may participate.

To register follow this link. Then submit your ten dollar participation fee to the Pamlico County 4-H Agent. Deadline to register is 5 p.m. on February 28th. Submit your participation fee to Pamlico County 4-H by March 6th. Mail: PO Box 8, Bayboro, NC 28515; Deliver: 13724 NC Highway 55 Alliance, NC 28509

The participation fee is ten dollars for each participant not for each poult.

Pamlico County 4-H staff will help with picking up the poults on June 8th in Raleigh and delivering them to the Pamlico Extension office. Participants will be asked to come to the Extension office that day by 6:00 p.m. to pick up their poults. To give the poults a healthy start, 5 lbs of turkey starter will be given to each participant.
