Our Chickens Inspire Us

Meet beautiful Betty. She is so beautiful that she has many fans. She can be a little bossy with other chickens, but she is gentle with us. Her breed is a Plymouth Barred Rock and she lays pale brown eggs.

Laverne is at the bottom of the pecking order. She is a favorite by our students because she is often picked on by the other chickens. We cheer for Laverne when she jumps in to snatch up worm treats or fresh strawberries. Laverne is an Americauna and she lays beautiful pale blue eggs. Americauna's nickname is "Easter Egger".

Wilma rules the roost! She is the boss, the leader and is always in charge of the flock. She pecks at the other chickens if they are doing something that she doesn't want them to do. She is also the biggest, so the other chickens do whatever Wilma wants them to do. Wilma is a New Hampshire Red and lays dark brown eggs.

Our Chickens are everywhere in the school building as well. We are all big fans of the girls!

And then there are the eggs..., such an amazing process!

We're hatching healthiness on the farm every day!
