A Blog by Chicken Wrangler Sara

It’s pretty well accepted that chickens are useful for laying eggs.

On Miller Farm, however, they serve other purposes.

They have been therapy chickens for a homesick international student.

They provide hours of entertainment for the humans on the farm.

They also give Chicken Wrangler Sara a workout when they escape from the chicken yard.

This morning I read about another brilliant use for chickens. Here is the headline:

Campus chickens combat crickets at Boerne elementary school

Students who take care of chickens are called “chicken tenders”

You can read all about Van Raub Elementary School in Boerne, Texas, and their cricket-eating chickens here. There’s even a video.

I’ve often wondered why we don’t see many crickets on Miller Farm. Now I know.
