Grade 5/6 Students at Alpenglow School
Alpenglow School looks after 11 chickens. They are kept outside in an atrium located within CCHS. Everyday the grade 5/6 class looks after the chickens by feeding them and giving them water and lots of love. Roughly twice a month we clean their chicken coop. All of our chickens have names! The amount of eggs we are normally receiving at this time of year is about four or five a day. After we collect the eggs we sanitize them and keep them in the fridge. We sell cartons of twelve eggs for a suggested donation of $7. Sometimes we run into problems with our chickens like them getting sick. Recently one of our chickens passed away. Her name was Freddie. Despite the colder temperatures this past week our chickens are doing really well and they are very happy!
