Chicks


Thank you to Avi and her mother, Krista, for bringing in 6 of their chicks for us to see, hold, and learn about.  When the chicks came, on Thursday, they were just 3 days old.  

Many of the children knew:
Roosters are male chickens
Hens are female chickens and
chicks are baby chickens 

We all learned some new vocabulary for chickens.
We learned that:
male chicks are called cockerels
female chicks are called pullets

One of the most important things we learned was to treat the chicks with care.
