A New Home to Roost

​Nifty new nesting boxes
The much anticipated and long awaited chickens have finally arrived at BYDC. The 4 lovely ladies arrived last Thursday much to the delight of students and staff, and are settling in well.
With many thanks to the talented and crafty Certificate I in Construction students, the chickens are loving life in their new chicken coop. In fact, the chickens are enjoying their new home so much that they have delivered us 4 eggs over the weekend.
The chickens, named Sunny, Arya, Captain Midnight and Sienna are welcome additions and are currently being cared for by the Waratah boys and staff. Morning and afternoon care routines including feeding, cleaning and restocking the coop, and collecting eggs are some of the responsibilities the boys have taken on, and from all reports they are thoroughly enjoying their caretaker roles.
