Defend the Flock - #FlockDefender Youth Program

Youth are the future of our nation’s poultry farming and industry. We encourage and prepare all poultry owners – including future and aspiring growers – to implement diligent biosecurity practices.

There are three ways to be a #FlockDefender

LEARN: Use free resources for club meetings and classes

The free #FlockDefender Youth Toolkit below has information for all ages, including biosecurity checklists, social media graphics, animated graphics, webinars, videos, newsletters, plus a poster and bookmark. You can download the full kit here in English or Spanish.

SHARE: Show us what you know

Show off your flock! Share photos of your poultry or biosecurity practices with us. We’ll use your pictures on the Defend the Flock social media pages.

FOLLOW: Follow us on Facebook and Twitter

We’ll help you stay up to date with the latest biosecurity information.
