Raising Chickens Creates Strong Community

In many school districts, or at least at Katonah Elementary School, hatching chicks in first grade is one of the highlights of Elementary school.  As a class, students learn how to care for a living thing.  They learn that it requires hard work, which can sometimes be messy and smelly.  However, it all becomes worth it at the end when each student, gets to name a chick, hold it in their hands, and know that they had a part in creating this life.


Caring for chickens is an amazing way to create a strong community dynamic between students of all ages, and living communities of every kind.  Students learn how to be responsible because now, they have something depending on them.  They learn that it takes hard work, and that they need to rely on each other for help by splitting up jobs, and taking shifts.


Raising chickens is a perfect way to build a community that concentrates on traditional, and sustainable living, in environments such as boarding schools, sleep away camps, regular day camps, condos, apartment complexes, and many more.  It’s an amazing way to reach out to those around you, work towards something together, and create a healthier, more natural way of eating and living.
