Our Friends, Claire and Brownie
We "rented" two young chicks from a local farm this month. The children enjoyed watching them grow and they now understand the hard work that goes into caring for these young birds. It took some time for the children to feel comfortable with the chicks, but after a week most of the children could hold them easily. We put names in a hat and "Claire" and "Brownie" were chosen for our future egg-laying hens. In the early fall, the students can visit the farm and purchase eggs from our new friends. Thank you, Claire and Brownie, for providing us with two adventure-filled weeks!
