ST. ALBANS CITY SCHOOL CHICKENS
This Spring the stewardship committee and Team USA decided to take on the project of caring for chickens on school property. Kindergarteners were already incubating and hatching young chicks. A half dozen of this year's chicks were kept and looked after by USA students and then staff until a suitable chicken pen could be built. The challenge for the school is to try and keep the chickens safe from various predators so that students can enjoy being with them when they return in the Fall. These pictures show that a barrier had to be built into the ground to keep possums and raccoons from digging under the fencing to enter and kill the chickens. The pen also has a ceiling of fencing to protect against hawks. The chickens were moved into their new pen on Tuesday 7-9-2019.
