Here are some thoughts that were created from observing feathered friends.
Fine feathers don't mean you can fly.
Don't count your chickens before they've hatched
Caught with egg on your face
Rule the roost
Top of the flock
Quit your squawking
Fussing like an old hen
Wake up with the chickens
Fly the coop
Yolks on you
Feather your nest
Don't put all your eggs in one basket
Madder than a wet hen
Stick your neck out
Ruffle your feathers
Strutting your stuff
Bad egg/Good egg
This week we learned about many chicken terms, body parts of chickens, breeds, egg colors and characteristics of our flock. Our 6th graders learned about marketing and the power of words. They can talk to you about "cage free", "free range" and "pasture raised" eggs. If you want the best eggs for your family, they have the answer and the reason.
Check out the different combs that are represented in our coop. We have a Rose Comb, Pea Comb and Single Comb. Pretty cool science lessons!
Ask your kids about their farm lesson this week. It was great!
