Bawk! BawK!

We learned about chickens as we read Dan’s Pet. Here is what we learned…

  • they lay eggs
  • they eat worms
  • they have light blue, green, white, flesh colored, and brown eggs
  • the chickens eat seeds
  • they eat bugs
  • they grow in a few weeks and almost adults in a few months
  • the chicks are wet when hatched then the yellow feathers dry
  • they take a dirt bath
  • they preen their feathers
  • they shed their feathers
  • they eat bread
  • some chickens are raised in barns, cages, or live outside (almost in the wild)
  • lay 1 egg a day
  • they are afraid of many things like hawks
  • hens lay the eggs
