    My 4.5 year old would like to take a few of the chicks to his preschool. Would it be ok to seperate the chicks for about an hour and a half to take a couple there? They are over two weeks old now. Would this disrupt them too much?

    I was planning on putting them in a little ventilated box with some food and water.

    Thanks for any info,
    Jodie

    i took a few birds, chicks, and ducklings to my little cousins school once. They were fine. I would say it would be ok to do that. Just take enough chicks to keep so thay can keep eachother warm.

    I have been taking my Buff Orpingtons to my childrens Elementary school one day a week for two weeks now and they love it [​IMG] The kids make drawings of how they change and ask all kinds of questions.

    I took 4 of our 1 1/2 week old chicks to my sons' preschool last Thurs. The kids had a blast. It was very warm that day and the chicks seemed fine if a little tired when I got them back in their brooder. It's hard work being oohed & aaah'd over [​IMG]
