My chicks are 9 days old and thriving, so I decided they could survive a trip to the child care center where I work. I teach toddlers and twos. They were sooo excited to see the chicks. I was amazed at how gentle they were with them. One little girl giggled every time the baby chick touched her hand and said, "It tickles!" I also visited the preschool rooms with them. Those children were full of questions. Do they fly? Where do they sleep? Where are there beds? Why do you need a rooster to get baby chicks? (uh-oh!) I encourage you to offer to bring your chicks to a school or center near you. They will enjoy it and so will you!
