We made another visit to Hunt Club Farm. My mom came with us this time. Being there really makes me want to live on a farm. I love that they are family owned and operated. They have lots of volunteers there for the summer. Most of them were high school students.
They also installed this fun dump truck right in between the goat and chicken coops. It has three levers, and even I had trouble working it, but Kiah quickly picked it up. Both girls had fun scooping up the sand and dumping it back out.
On to the chickens…
Kiah saw the other kids picking them up and she wanted to do it too. Last time we were here she didn’t even want to touch them. She was perfectly content to watch them walk around.
This time she wanted to hold them, and she did. She was a little nervous at first, but became a natural within seconds.
We were there for over four hours and Kiah spent the majority of the time with the chickens.
She didn’t want to leave! I wasn’t about to make her leave either – while we explored the rest of the petting farm she would call out to us wherever we were to show us the new chicken she picked up.
If she was feeling nervous about picking up one of the bigger ones she would ask one of the other kids in there for help, or they would ask if she wanted help.
We got to watch the kids play with each other. Ava said they keep bumping heads to each other!
