    Can you call the principal of the school and ask what their plans are for the chickens? Maybe you could offer to give them a home or find them a home if the school no longer wants them. If nothing else, maybe place a call to animal control and let them know you'd be willing to take them or find them a home. Wish I had better advice for you

    Just walk over with a book for dummies for chickens or explain your concerns. Ask what the plans are for the little kids? Ask if you can help them out and teach the kids how to do it the proper way?

    I'd call the Superintendent of your school district and ask about the neglectful situation of the chickens. If the principal doesn't know what's going on at their own school, pointing it out to them isn't likely to change much. A call from the school district will light fires under everyone's ass.

    Former teacher, here.
