It may be fall but students at Chabad Port Washington’s Florence Brownstein Preschool have spring fever with the arrival of their chicks.
The students were treated to a special presentation on how chickens lay eggs and what happens when they hatch by Tom Spaar, a farmer at Quiver Farm in Pennsylvania.
Along with Max and Ruby, a rooster and a chicken, Spaar came with 12 eggs which were then carefully placed in an incubator for a few days. Under the nurturing care of Pre-K teacher Carrie Steir and her students, the eggs hatched and out popped 12 healthy and fluffy chicks, much to everyone’s delight. Spaar will be collecting the hatchlings and returning them to Quiver Farm later this week.
