Here For You
Poultry Extension delivers research-based knowledge to citizens throughout North Carolina, whether you’re a producer, an industry partner or a homeowner interested in raising a backyard flock.
We specialize in a number of subject matter areas: nutrition, feed milling, poultry health, food safety, processing, hatchery management, poultry reproduction/breeding, and grow-out management for most species of poultry. We are also committed to training the next generation of poultry leaders through our involvement in 4-H programs.
Through workshops, short courses, and specialized publications, we find many ways to make the information you need available.
From eggs to birds, we’ve got you covered.
