Today we had a visit from Martin Stockdale who is the dad of Julia in Grade 1C. Martin owns a chicken farm  and brought along some 3 days old chicks for the students to hold and cuddle. We learnt that there are 2 types of chickens. Those that are bred for eggs and some for meat. Martin raises his chicks for meat. He also described the process of preparing for the delivery of 3 hour old chicks and growing them for the next 6 weeks before they are sold for supermarkets and KFC.

Observing, holding and cuddling the chicks today is preparing us for us our own chicks when they hatch this week.

What did you observe about the chicks today?
