A Blog by Chicken Wrangler Sara
The preschool class at my school hatched chicks before Christmas. Usually, they do this in the Spring, but I no longer question anything. The classroom teacher took them home the first weekend, but her dogs were much too interested in them for her comfort.
So, the next weekend I volunteered to take them home. After all, there are only six dogs in our house and our grandson was coming to visit. We could use some excitement on Miller Farm.
I promised to bring pictures as they grew. I also said I would bring eggs when they started to lay.
The following Monday, when I saw the preschool class, one of them asked if I had brought eggs. Preschoolers have no concept of time.
After the past two years, I’m not sure I do either.
