Project 1.
  A. Consists of the hatching and rearing of chicks from
     at least three settings of eggs. Only standard breeds
     should be chosen and preferably none but American
     breeds and Leghorns. Eggs should be secured from
     reliable breeders, preferably local breeders. Careful
     records of cost of production and profit must be kept.
     Project not complete without an exhibit.
