    My daughter's preschool teacher heard about the baby chicks that we hatched. She asked if I could bring the babies and maybe a hen to school one day. I told her no problems.
    She said she will have a farm animal day and will talk about cows, horses, pigs and chickens. Maybe get someone to bring over a horse or mule.
    I was wondering if anyone out there has an online source for coloring book chicken pictures. Something I can put together to show eggs, chicks hatching from egg, hen, rooster, cooking eggs, making bread, a roasted dinner chicken maybe??? as a little storybook.
    I got a couple days to put it together, and everyone out there is such a wealth of chicken knowledge. Help me show chickens in a positive light to preschool and kindergardeners.

    Thanks for the help,
    Cory

    Sorry I can't help w/ the coloring book gig, but wanted to say it's cool that you're taking chickens to the schools.

    Kids are so so so much closer to nature than adults. Show a kid a chicken, she'll want to hold it. Even if ya can't find the perfect coloring, the birds will be a big hit.

    Can you take some pix and let us know how it turned out?

    Good luck!
