Our new addition school chicks have been a hit with the older and the young alike. They are now three weeks old and a very loved by our school community. Room 11 and the Year 3/4 Elective have been caring for them and learning about all the great things chickens do for our gardens. Other classes have written letters explaining to the elective group how they would like to care for the chicks for a day or too. So our chicks have been travelling around our school.
Chicken poop is wonderful natural fertiliser, chickens give us eggs, eat bugs and weeds and put air back in to the soil. Next year they will join our flock and will all live happily together in the Backyard Gardens.
