Kids and Chicks
Patricia Foreman - Gossamer Foundation
Which came first; the chicken or the child? Usually, it's the chicken—with a child trundling afterwards giggling with delight. This hands-on workshop shows kids (and adults) how to responsibly, and safely, handle baby chicks and fully-grown birds. Learn how to keep interacting with chickens a fun experience that can last a lifetime. Kids learn about the value of family flocks in green communities, and know that chickens offer more than just eggs, they have skills that enable local food production. Chickens are truly pets with benefits.
