Tuesday's Tip from our Junior Blogger: Proper Holding Techniques

Our 5-year-old has taken an interest in the ChickinBoots blog. After I write my post for the week she likes me to read it out loud to her and look at the photos.  Just recently it dawned on me, why not allow her to write a post each week about the chickens, too?  I told her about  my idea and she was thrilled so from here on out our 5-year-old daughter will be our "junior blogger" every Tuesday. She would like to provide you with one chicken tending tip each week.

So without further ado, welcome to...

Tuesday's Tip From Our Junior Blogger
Chicken tending tips straight from the mouth of a 5-year-old!

Ways to Hold a Chicken
There are two ways to hold a chicken.  You have to hold one hand over one wing and one hand over the other wing. Or you can hold your chicken like a football.  If you don't hold them right they will peep and you will have to put them down.  When you are done holding the chicken you take a squirt of hand sanitizer.

Stay tuned for more tips every Tuesday from our Junior Blogger!
