What a cute chickie
Jackie Schoneck had an enraptured audience Thursday afternoon at the Kitsap Pavilion when she introduced a group of children to her two nameless pets. Her pets, a white almost-adult chicken and a brown almost-adult chicken, were the guests of honor at Kitsap County Park and Recreations Spring Give em a Break camp.
Schoneck told the children how she came to own such unusual pets: A homeless man who stays primarily in the Silverdale area owned the chickens but could not care for them. So, she talked to her two sons who promised to take care of the chickens, which were then about three or four weeks old. The boys promised to feed them, bathe them and clean up after them.
The boys made good on the promise, she said, but they have failed to name the chickens.
Schonek has offered several names Lunch and Dinner, Basted and Barbecued or Original Recipe and Extra Crunchy quickly being rejected. The chickens arent fully adult yet and are in the process of losing their baby feathers and getting their adult feathers. They also are almost ready to start laying eggs.
Were going to have fresh eggs for breakfast, she said.
Schoneck fielded hard-hitting questions from the curious children.
Are they boys or girls? How do you know? one
