We would like to introduce you to the Burstow Chickens, Clucky, Rose, Waffle, Midnight, Sugar and Peach.

The chickens joined us in their eggs, where we nurtured them in an incubator until they emerged as fluffy chicks.

They are now seven years old and live a life of luxury in their chicken hotel where they are well loved and well fed.

During the school holidays families are invited to volunteer their time to care for the girls and are rewarded with fresh eggs.

The chickens are fed daily on pellets and corn and their favourite treat is meal worms.

The chickens are instrumental to school life here at Burstow, they teach the children how to care for another living thing and they learn lots about animal life.
