A Blog by Chicken Wrangler Sara

Rachel helped a third-grade class at her school hatch chicks this spring. She procured the eggs, monitored the process, and found homes for the chicks once they hatched.

One of those homes was Miller Farm. They lived in the brooder for a while.

Eventually, they outgrew the brooder and were ready to join the rest of the flock. I neglected to check the fence for escape hatches and the chick managed to wander into the neighbor’s yard.

I fixed that gap and they found another one and began to explore our backyard.

I  think I have secured the chicken yard.

The good news is it looks like most of the chicks are hens. We can always use more chicken eggs!
