We were sorry to see our chicks leave on Friday but we know they are going to continue to grow and change on the farm. We have learnt so much from our beautiful chicks and before they left everyone was able to have a hold. We needed to remember to be calm and quiet so that we didn’t frighten the young chicks. It was lovely to feel how soft and warm they were. Here are our reflections on holding the chicks.
