The Chicks Are Here

Chicks Are Here!

Many hands helped bring a new flock of baby chicks back to the Wakefield estate this month!


 Sixth-grade students at Milton’s Pierce Middle School patiently watched over the eggs as they developed in the incubator and woodshop students at Milton High School built and installed the nesting boxes in the Wakefield estate’s newly revamped chicken coop.  Middle school students next door at the Thacher Montessori school will take care of the chicks on a daily basis, eagerly incorporating “farm chores” into their daily school routine.  Coming this fall: fresh eggs!
