My friend Jane helped me out with Green Day at the Lycée Français. It was non-stop kids! The hens were kind of stressed, but Jo Schmoe did really well. I think we saw all grades in 2.5 hours.
The older kids got to hold the hen; the younger kids got to touch. They were surprised by how soft she was. We had a few poop accidents, which caused quite a stir, too!
One of the most memorable kids was the little guy who kept asking if we were going to eat the chickens. He said he wanted fried chicken. When he got a chance to hold one of the hens, however, he decided she was too cool to eat!
The little ones were a little more timid, and generally they would hang back until one of their classmates was brave enough to touch the hen. Then everyone wanted to touch – all at the same time!
Enjoy the photos!
