Finally joined!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I am a special education teacher at Waterford Country School in Quaker Hill, CT. I have been hatching chickens with my classes for about six years. We are planning our hatch for this year. This project keeps growing. I work with students with emotional issues and animals are always a good way to connect. Every year we look for eggs from different places. The larger the variety the more exciting. We have hatched chickens and ducks. We have a farm on our campus. Some chickens go down to the farm, others have found homes in our community and with other staff. It is always exciting! I am always trolling BYC and other sites for information and finally joined. This is my favorite time of year.

Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. Raising chickens is a wonderful experience for children. If you haven't done so already, definitely check out our Learning Center at http://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center. There is lots of useful information there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.

We never had anything neat like that  when we were in school.  Of course  growing up in Chicago in the '50's  we didn't learn about any animals  :(.   Welcome to Backyard chickens.

Hi and welcome to BYC - we are glad to have you onboard with us! Sounds like a great project, and maybe you could connect with other BYC members in your area (search your state thread) - you never know, they may be able to help out with a school visit, or some eggs, or anything else that you feel may enrich your students' learning experience.

 

All the best

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
