Why? Because we thought it would be fun and we thought our kids just might learn a few life lessons.
Like where do eggs come from (yes they are egg layers not fryers ).
And the kids got to see a bit of the food chain last night when one of the chickens got a hold of a worm...Ivy was upset for awhile then came to realize it was OK for the chicken to eat it. Ivy is a fan of worms, so that was a bit hard for her. She rescued the worm at first...then gave him over for a snack.
