Free Range Chickens

We already knew the school year would be unlike any other: getting ready for a move, new teachers in the classrooms, new friends to meet and families to welcome.

But then there was the crowing.

Peeking into the Elementary yard in mid morning revealed two roosters and five hens happily scavenging for bugs in the grass, up on the porch poking around, and having a stared own with Charlie the dog.

“They’re looking for people,” Miss Edel explained. “They’re very social.”

That need would soon be met with multiple daily visits from the children, feeding them, cleaning their pen, changing their water, repairing the fence.
