With the project "From Egg to Chicken", the KiTa Rasselbande of the Alfter community and I won first place at the Westenergie Climate Protection Prize 2021 in Alfter.  

 

I'm still overwhelmed and I didn't expect it. The aim of the project is to make it clear to children at an early age that excessive consumption of eggs and meat from factory farms and abroad is a major driver of man-made climate change and the associated animal suffering. The consumer determines the market with his behavior. The children playfully learn that questioning consumption and buying from the farmer next door is a sustainable gain for the climate and animal welfare. The rule is: short distances, conscious consumption and humility in front of the animal!

As part of the project, chicks will hatch in the day care center in March. The children accompany the chicks from laying the eggs through hatching to the first few days in the rearing area.

Mit dem Projekt "Vom Ei zum Huhn" haben die KiTa Rasselbande der Gemeinde Alfter und ich den 1. Platz beim Westenergie Klimaschutzpreis 2021 in Alfter gewonnen. 

 

Ich bin immer noch überwältigt und habe damit nicht gerechnet. In dem Projekt geht es darum, Kindern früh deutlich zu machen, dass ein exzessiver Konsum von Eiern und Fleisch aus Massentierhaltungen und dem Ausland ein großer Treiber des menschengemachten Klimawandels und auch dem damit einhergehenden Tierleids ist. Der Konsument bestimmt mit seinem Verhalten den Markt. Die Kinder lernen spielerisch, dass ein hinterfragter Konsum und Kauf beim Bauern nebenan ein nachhaltiger Gewinn für das Klima und Tierwohl ist. Es gilt: Kurze Wege, bewusster Konsum und Demut vor dem Tier!

Im Rahmen des Projekts werden also im März Küken in der KiTa schlüpfen. Die Kinder begleiten die Küken vom Einlegen der Eier über den Schlupf bis zu den ersten Tagen im Aufzuchtbereich.

The last pullets from this year are currently ready to lay. I am happy that they are part of the breeding line for 2022.

Bayerischer Rundfunk has  made a contribution to Swedish flower chickens. A couple of the hens and the rooster you can see in the post come from my breeding and have moved there.

You can find the article HERE.

8 weeks old. Sleeping on the bar works, but they don't want to keep their distance, even though there are significantly more sleeping places.

There they are - 33 little Swedes from Sweden crawled out of their eggs. In 3 days you can play on sod and in wood shavings. It'll be out in 10 days. Always with a heat lamp and plate, of course.

 

At this point, once again a huge thank you to the Swedish genebank for their trust and support!

These guys have already covered almost 1000 km - and not by post! Directly from Sweden to the Eifel to enrich our breeding line with fresh blood. After intensive inspection and disinfection, as well as rest, they moved to the incubator today. The result will be there in 21 days.

Due to the corona pandemic, an earlier pickup was unfortunately not possible this year.

This gentleman and two ladies moved to the Jagdhaus Monschau in April. We regularly look forward to pictures and see how they grow and thrive.

Nice feedback from young animals that left us in April this year. Together with a young rooster they moved a little further into the Eifel and grew properly.
