Each Spring, we raise baby chicks in my classroom and students are allowed to take the chicks home to start their own home flock of nesters or add to an existing flock. Every year about 10 students(with parent permission!)take home a one or two baby layers and usually add to the starter kit! One of my students's mom from last year's class was asking how our hens are laying right now and I had to admit the dreaded truth: we had no eggs being produced. Furthermore, we were forced to buy eggs at the store and I shared how my mom had teased me about paying for eggs. Well, surprise of surprises walked into my classroom just before the Christmas Break. This beautiful tin, from a very dear family who started their own small flock!
