Chicken Life Cycle for Kids
When we started raising chickens I knew nothing about them. Blake did all the reading and learn about what they required and how to give them the best so we could get eggs and meat from them.
Fast-forward six months and I was the one caring for them. And then teaching our kids everything I was learning about raising and caring for chickens.
Use this to learn about:
- differences between hen and roosters
- the life cycle of a chicken
- freshness of eggs
- parts of chickens
