I keep my 3 yr old grandson for his parents to work. He LOVES the chickens and helps me gather eggs, open the coops up, watch them while them free range in the afternoon, etc.. Yesterday, for his afternoon snack, I gave him popcorn and while he was eating it, I went to work on the laundry.. All of a sudden, I hear the sweetest voice on earth say: 'Gran, look at these tiny , little eggs".. I turned to see him standing there w/ his little hands cupped one on top of the other. When I went to see the 'tiny little eggs'---he opened his hands to reveal three popcorn kernels--which looked exactly like eggs!!! Egg shaped, egg colored and he was so proud to have found these 'eggs'.. I love sharing the chicken experience w/ him... Everyday he learns something new and I have so much fun w/ him.
