Chicken Report by Jewel & Aria
They are laying lots of eggs lately. They love to eat dandelions from the school garden. They do not peck you.
Our Silkie (breed) chicken passed away a few weeks ago. Her name is Leonardo. In February our chickens, including Leonardo, earned two first places and a second place in a chicken show (the North-Central Alberta Poultry Association Show; website:http://www.ncapoultrya.com). Leonardo was on of the first place winners.
The chickens love to cuddle. They are a little noisy. Our class has been needing more egg cartons, and has lots of eggs to give to families. They love to eat food scraps like lettuce, spinach and apples. They will keep laying lots of eggs in good condition if they are taken care of well.
