Tips From Our Junior Blogger: The Egg Song

Tuesday's Tip From Our Junior Blogger Chicken tending tips straight from the mouth of a Kindergartener!



The Egg Song
The egg song is when a chicken bawks a lot after they lay an egg.  I learned [from Fresh Eggs Daily] they might do this because:
1.  They sing their song so the predator sees them and not their egg.  They want to keep predators away from their eggs.  
2.  They sing because they laid an egg and they are happy and they want to tell everyone.
3.  They sing their song because they are looking for their friends after they laid their eggs.


For more information about The Egg Song read this entertaining article from Fresh Eggs Daily.

Tips From Our Junior Blogger: Feed Chickens Pumpkin Seeds

Tuesday's Tip From Our Junior Blogger Chicken tending tips straight from the mouth of a Kindergartener!

Feed Chickens Pumpkin Seeds



I learned [From Fresh Eggs Daily] that if chickens eat pumpkin seeds it helps them so that they don't have worms in their poop. You can take the seeds out of the pumpkin and then feed it to your chickens or you can make your chickens pumpkin soup.  To make the soup use some plain yogurt and grind up some pumpkin seeds from your Halloween pumpkin. Put the soup in half of your pumpkin and then just give it to the chickens.  They will eat the pumpkin bowl, too!

The recipe for Pumpkin Soup can be found at Fresh Eggs Daily.

Tips From Our Junior Blogger: Happy Chickens Lay More Eggs

Tuesday's Tip From Our Junior Blogger Chicken tending tips straight from the mouth of a Kindergartener!
By Little Chicken Tender


Happy Chickens Lay More Eggs



A happy chicken lays more eggs.  If they are scared they won't lay a lot of eggs and you may have to buy your eggs from the store.  If they are too hot or too cold they won't lay as many eggs.  If they eat the food they like they will lay more eggs; lots and lots of eggs. When chickens get old they don't lay as much eggs.
