Mrs. Piazza's First Grade Class Visits Brook Park Chickens

This morning I was thrilled to meet with Mrs. Piazza's First Grade class for a visit to see our chickens! We met up at school and then walked over to the coop. The school is in Mott Haven, just a few blocks away! We talked about what chickens like to eat and we brought some bok choy and cabbage for our hens and the students took turns feeding them. We also showed off our lovely coop so the kids could see the nesting boxes and the roosts where the hens sleep!

The best surprise awaited us upon our arrival! Two of the hens laid their first eggs! They have been with us for 52 days and we thought we may not see any eggs until the spring but there they are! Thank you to our volunteers that head out to feed and care for our chickens, rain or shine!

Here's a few pics from the day!

If you would like to bring a school group to visit, just email me at and we can arrange a visit!

A visit from New York City Montessori School

A first grade class from the New York City Montessori School came by the coop for a visit a few weeks ago to see our chickens! This is what it is all about.

If you have a class or group you would like to have visit, we would be happy to work with you! We can give a little workshop on the chickens and have students hold and feed our hens! This is a learning tool and groups of all ages are welcome!
