Popcorn Remembered

In spring 2012 we ordered 8 eggs and an incubator and the children watched as the eggs hatched and the chicks grew. We kept the four females and by the end of the summer we had laying hens. Chickens don't live very long; even if you keep them safe from foxes and don't eat them yourself! Popcorn, who had been the weakest chick and pecked by all the others lasted the longest but was found dead when we opened her cage on Wednesday 20th July 2016.
