Our Chickens

The Wallace Fields chickens not only offer fantastic educational benefits to our children, but also the unique opportunity to teach responsible pet ownership and model best practice in animal welfare. We are lucky to have 8 different varieties of hens, which are: Coucou, Copper Blacktail, Bluebell, Copper black, Columbine, Pied Suffolk, Ranger and Sussex.

The children enjoy visiting the chickens during break and lunchtimes, and nursery have the fabulous job of collecting the eggs!

We love that our whole school community is involved in the hens’ welfare, with parents helping to look after them at the weekends and during the school holidays, but we are always looking for new volunteers! If you would like to join our ‘Chicken Committee’ to make sure our hens have enough food and water during weekends and holidays, please sign up using this form! Volunteers are welcome to take the eggs home!
