Mrs Johns and the chicken encounter.......

 Today, we had an encounter with a 'Silkie' hen and a 'Australorp' chick.

Natalie, who also works with Mrs Johns, wanted to share her
 learning about chickens and their life cycle with us. 
 Their life cycle starts off when a hen lays an egg and then it hatches into a chick. It takes 21 days for a chick to hatch. Once a chick has hatched, it grows into a hen or a rooster in about 6 weeks. The hens then lay eggs and cycle starts over again.

Thanks for sharing Natalie!
