On Friday April 28th, there was an egg layed by the Alpenglow chickens. It is amazing to think that this project has come full circle. Amazing work Mr Graeme, Alpenglow staff, and all the students of this and last year's Grade 5/6 class at Alpenglow School!

The chickens are getting quite big and we are thinking that Frosty or Storm may lay a egg pretty soon. When we go into the coop we are always looking for eggs. Our rooster's were taken away and were brought to different farms and they have been replaced by seven different other kinds of chickens. We have two different very fluffy silkies as well as two new wyandotte chickens which look a lot like storm although much smaller. We also have two beautiful Silver Spangeled Hamberg chickens which are white with beautiful black polka dots! We also have one fairly difficult to catch black rose comb. All of these new hens are bantams, meaning they are small and hopefully will lay small eggs.
