Casey Farms: Project CHICK (Ages 6-12)

Join us for a fun and educational introduction to raising Chickens presented by Casey Farm of RI.

A farm educator from  Historic New England's Casey Farm in Saunderstown will present a slide show about how chickens are raised at the farm. Learn about the life cycle of chickens, what they eat, and what precautions are taken to protect them from predators. A display of various bird eggs, from hummingbird to ostrich will be available for viewing. Children can then observe and touch a live Dominique hen and learn how to properly handle a live baby chick!

The Children's Room will also be receiving all supplies needed to incubate a clutch of eggs after the presentation. Visitors can keep an eye on the incubator in the Children's Room for 21 days until the chicks hatch. The baby chicks will return to Casey Farm a week after hatching.
