We'll head down to the chicken coop (Fowlty Towers, a joke for those of you who remember the British comedy series Fawlty Towers). We'll have a hands-on lesson on all things fowlty: chicken care and feeding, breeding, rearing of chicks, egg-gathering and cleaning, and if you want, I will explain how chickens get from the farm-yard to your plate (but fear not, we shan't actually kill any). When we're done, you'll understand the difference between a rooster and a hen, and know a bit about raising healthy, compassionately farmed food versus factory-farmed meat. You'll get a chance to pet and hold a gentle hen, hold baby chicks (if we have any at the time), and toss scratch for the chickens (which will make you immediately popular). This experience is especially great for children, to see where eggs come from and gather some from the coop to keep for their breakfast. I modify the experience according to what guests want to know, how much detail they are interested in. For children it is a gentle experience, I leave out the discussion on butchering, depending on their age. Kids must be at least 3 years old to participate. I have only gentle birds and am careful to ensure kids have no fearful experiences (e.g. birds flapping around).
