My daughter just started kindergarten three weeks ago. On the first day her teacher explained that each thursday they would have show and tell. Ever since, she has been hounding me about taking some "chicks" for show and tell. While I'm all for taking actual chicks to show and tell (they are much calmer and easier to handle.) We have what I would consider "toddler chicks." They are about 26 days old and are at the point of not being real excited to be picked up. In two weeks when we are scheduled to bring the chicks for the show and tell, they will be at that awkward "teenage" chicken stage. My fear is that the chickens will be scared and stressed out by the situation. I was thinking that I'd transfer 3 or 4 of them to a pet taxi the night before when they are nice and calm. Then try to find a playpen type of structure and bring some bread for the kids to hand feed them if they are comfortable once they come out of the taxi into the playpen. This would give the kids some interaction with the chickens without anyone having to actually try to hold the wiggly little buggers. Do you guys think this will work? If not, what would you suggest or do differently? Any advice would be appreciated!
