School poultry

In the mid-20th century, some schools kept chickens so pupils could learn about their care and feeding. These boys from a Denniston school, on the West Coast, inspect some free-range White Leghorns at their feeding trough in 1944. The hen house is elevated to keep the floor dry and deter rats, weasels and stoats.
