Our Chicks!

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.

  7. Dear Preps,
    I hoped you enjoyed the the baby chicks they looked so soft and fluffy. I saw there were all different colours. Leo says that they have grown so big that they can eat and drink all by themselves. They also grew hair and were very fluffy and they liked to make lots of noises and pick at the ground. I wonder how big they are now?

  8. Hi Classmates,
    I loved the chickens and I loved holding them. My favorite part about the chickens is that they always were pecking each other and that they were really really fluffy, they looked really really cute. I liked holding them and when they ate they looked really cute as well, sometimes they looked like fluffy wolves.

  13. Dear Preps,
    We really enjoyed seeing the baby chickens.
    Olivia – The chicks were so fluffy and soft.
    Melina – Why were the chickens soft?
    Why do the chickens hatch out of eggs? Why do chickens have not many featherswhen born ?
    From Maria, Melina and Olivia

  14. Hi Preps,
    It is annoying when the chickens have to leave, when I was in prep our chickens had to go to the farm too. When they were in your care you took good care of them so I know they will grow up extra strong because you helped them grow up. Jordan says they liked to play a lot. What did they do when they were playing?

    From Jordan and Riley O

  15. Hi Preps
    Xavier felt sad that the chickens were leaving. I really liked how Xavier described what they felt like. I think Xavier learnt a lot about the chickens.
    All the chickens look so cute.
