My GF is a pre-school teacher. She may think I am a bit odd for having chickens but says she would love to hatch some in her classroom. The school accepts kids from 1yr old to kinder garden age (half day thing). I have a few questions After the hatch would it be OK to keep them in a brooder IN the classroom..let say for about a week till they come home? What is the acceptable age of kids around poultry chicks? Any health concerns? They eat snacks and lunch in there rooms not in a cafeteria. I would hate for the board of health to shut them down because peeps in the classroom. myself i don't see a problem with hatching them...its keeping them there after the hatch that may be a problem.
