Graduating Class of 2022

 

We arrived at CCAD's Packard Library as eggs on March 30, 2022, and hatched on April 13. We had many visits from students, staff, faculty and guests who gave us lots of love, care, and laughs. We also had over 1000 views on our Hatch Cam livestream. On April 19 we were all adopted by a loving farm, Bring the Farm to You®.

My Story

My name is Chickpea. I am a Lavender Orpington breed which is a British breed of chicken. Our original family was bred in the late nineteenth century by William Cook of Orpington, Kent, in south-east England.  We were intended to be a dual-purpose breed, to be reared both for eggs and for meat, but soon became exclusively a show bird.

I was born on April 13, 2022 in CCAD Packard Library. I grew there for 7 days and was adopted all together with my friends by a nearby family who has a barn yard and 5 hens already.

My Story

My name is EGGolas. I am a Blue Andalusian (Spanish: Andaluza Azul) breed which is a breed of domestic chicken indigenous to the autonomous community of Andalusia in south-west Spain. My family is distributed through much of the countryside of Córdoba and Seville, and is concentrated particularly in the area of Utrera, which is considered the heartland of the breed.

My Story

My name is Almighty Peep, Destroyer of Worlds. I am a Black Australorp which is a chicken breed of Australian origin, developed as a utility breed with a focus on egg laying and is famous for laying more than 300 eggs. Our breeds achieved world-wide popularity in the 1920s after the breed broke numerous world records for number of eggs laid and has been a popular breed in the western world since. I am one of eight poultry breeds created in Australia and recognized by the Australian Poultry Standards. The most popular color of my breed is black, which is the only color recognized in the United States of America, but blue and white are also recognized in Australia and the Poultry Club South Africa recognizes buff, splash, wheaten laced and golden in addition.

My Story

My name is Dolly Part-hen. I am running super fast. I am a Light Brahma which is an American breed of chicken. My original family was developed in the United States from birds imported from the Chinese port of Shanghai, and was the principal American meat breed from the 1850s until about 1930.

My Story

My name is Toast. I am talking loud. I am an Olive egger breed which is not a breed in our own right. We are a hybrid produced by crossing two different breeds, a cockerel from brown egg stock and an hen that lays blue eggs. We can be large fowl or bantams and be a surprising variety of shapes, sizes and colors. We are bred for the sole purpose of producing olive green eggs.
