It’s time to say goodbye!

The Youth Services department is very lonely this week without the little peeps of the chicks to keep us company!

The foster families met Sunday to bring back their chicks and share their stories.  This is always a bittersweet time because even though the chicks are a BIG responsibility, it is really hard to watch our special friends go away. 
If you are interested in seeing what the chicks were up to during the two weeks they spent with their foster families, stop by the Youth Services department and check out the chick posters.  There are plenty pictures that will put a smile on your face—these chicks didn’t just sit at home, they went to visit classrooms, went on walks, and drove tractors?!?!  You will just have to see it to believe it!

All of the foster chicks were hens, so they went to a local farm where they will live long, happy lives laying lots of eggs.  

If you are interested in becoming a foster chick parent, be on the lookout next April for the registration day.  You are required to attend a Foster Chick parenting class and you must also attend the reunion.  This class fills up quickly, so you must be willing to accept the commitment and you must also be early to register.

Until next year.....Cheep, Cheep
