I have been asked to bring a couple of my very good natured and docile hens for "Show & Tell" at a Girl Scout event called "Girls in the Garden" hosted by a local community garden. I was asked because the event director is an old friend of mine and she knows that my hens are sweet and very calm around people, NOT because of my knowledge of gardening and the advantages of chickens in the garden. I have heard that there are advantages to having hens in the garden, but I have such a black thumb that I gave up gardening years ago. I'm sure all the girls (5th graders & up) would enjoy hugging a chicken, I mean, who doesn't right? But what do I do with them after everyone has gotten a hug? Are there any experts out there who would care to bestow their knowledge of gardening with chickens on me, so that I can impart some wisdom on the next generation? Thank you.
