Chickens make wonderful companions for children. Daily tasks such as collecting eggs, taking out food scraps and replacing fresh water can all be done by young children which in turn, teaches them about looking after animals. Your child’s immune system, mental health and happiness will also benefit from owning feathered friends.
Life cycles are a fantastic way of introducing the circle of life, nature and change to your child
A lot goes into an egg. A hen must eat 4 pounds of feed to make a dozen eggs.
Working with Living Eggs, we provide the children with the opportunity to hatch and rear chickens.
Programs like Living Eggs help the children to build a positive relationship with animals which develops their non-verbal communication, compassion and empathy.
If the allergic child holds a chick, we encourage the child to wear gloves
All children need to wash hands after touching the chicks in case there is any residue of egg protein, in addition to usual hygiene purposes."
