I teach agriscience in a suburban environment near Kansas City, MO. I am very interested in getting my students some fun hands-on experiences and exhibiting opportunities and think that chickens may be a good fit. I grew up in a small rural community on a row crop farm and have taught ag for 14 years. My wife and I have 2 sons -- ages 4 and 6. I'd like for both of them to also have the opportunity to raise and show chickens in 4H and FFA. This will be my first experience in poultry production. I am really limited on space at my school. My big question (and it may be a dumb one): Is there any way possible to raise a few bantams in a classroom setting? Too dirty/smelly/noisy? Any suggestions and ideas are greatly and sincerely appreciated.
