There are many benefits to doing this, one being that raising chickens provides food to growing children.
Taking care of animals helps children learn responsibility, gentleness, and the importance of looking after other living things.
Kids learn empathy and compassion. They also get to experience the joy of friendship with those animals.
These feathered friends are relatively simple to care for, make enjoyable pets, and a good laying hen will reward you with eggs.
If you are lucky enough to be able to hatch chicks with your kids, you are going to have a world of learning happen. From having to learn about turning eggs to how long it takes for them to hatch.
It's a fun and educational experience to experience whether you are a child or an adult.
