How I Fell In Love With Chickens and Why I Want to Help You Love Them Too
I fell in love with chickens in the third grade, when my classroom incubated and hatched baby chicks.
For weeks leading up to the event, it was all we could think about. When the big day finally arrived, a real farmer came and hand-delivered exactly one egg to each of us. To suburban kids the farmer seemed so foreign in his overalls and trucker hat that he might as well have been an alien. With patience he taught us all about incubating eggs and caring for the baby chicks they would become. Before leaving, he numbered the eggs and placed them in the incubator.
Each of us got to choose a name for our baby chick, after which the teacher handed out birth certificates for us to color in. Several days later a hurricane whipped through town, knocking out power and depriving the incubating eggs of heat for hours. We knew we were lucky when nearly half of the chicks eventually pecked their way out of their shells. (A real-life example of why you shouldn't count your chickens before they hatch!)
