Last Tuesday we were lucky to have a visit from Martin Stockdale who is a dad of Julia in 1C. Martin owns a chicken farm and shared his experience with us about running a chicken farm. Martin shared with us there are two types of chickens that are bred, which are for eggs or meat. Martin raised his chicks for meat. Martin describe the process for raising his chicks until they are sold for supermarkets and KFC. Martin showed us different tools and resources that he uses to look after the chicks and for feeding them.
Martin also brought along 3 day old chicks which we got to hold, this helped prepare the grade ones for their own chicks.
Here are some photos of us holding the chicks 🙂
