The Joy of Watching Our Grandson Learn to Raise Chickens



teaching kids about farming

There's something incredibly heartwarming about seeing the younger generation take an interest in age-old traditions and skills. For me and my husband, witnessing our grandson immerse himself in the world of chicken farming has been nothing short of a blessing.

From the moment we introduced our grandson to our flock of chickens, his eyes lit up with curiosity and wonder. It was as if a whole new world had opened up before him, filled with clucking hens, fluffy chicks, and the endless possibilities that come with caring for these feathered friends.


One of the most delightful moments has been watching our grandson eagerly volunteer to help us with farm chores. Whether it's feeding the chickens, cleaning the coop, or tending to the garden, he's always ready and willing to lend a hand. But his absolute favorite task? Gathering the eggs.


The sight of our grandson carefully reaching into the nest boxes, his little hands holding onto the warm, freshly laid eggs, is truly a sight to behold. The pride and joy that light up his face when he presents us with a basket full of eggs is priceless. And let's not forget the sound that accompanies this daily ritual – the unmistakable call that echoes across the field: "Bak Bak!" It's the cutest thing, hearing his young voice ring out as he proudly announces his success.


But beyond the adorable moments and the fun of farm chores, there's a deeper significance to teaching our grandson about raising chickens and caring for our land. It's about instilling in him a sense of responsibility, respect for nature, and an understanding of where our food comes from.


In today's fast-paced world, where food often comes from supermarkets and packages, it's easy for children to lose touch with the origins of their meals. By involving our grandson in the process of raising chickens, we're teaching him valuable life skills and helping him develop a deeper appreciation for the food on his plate.

Moreover, as he grows older, it's essential for him to understand not just how to care for the chickens but also how to process them. While it may seem like a daunting task for a young child, it's crucial for him to learn the importance of sustainability, self-sufficiency, and providing for our family.


Teaching our children and grandchildren these skills isn't just about passing down traditions; it's about equipping them with the knowledge and values they need to thrive in the world. It's about fostering a connection to the land, respecting the animals we raise, and understanding the true value of hard work.



In conclusion, watching our grandson learn to raise chickens has been a joyous journey filled with laughter, learning, and love. It's a reminder of the simple pleasures in life and the

importance of passing down wisdom from one generation to the next. As we continue to share these experiences with him, we're not just teaching him about chickens; we're teaching him about life. And for that, we feel truly blessed.
