Last month, EF STEAM students held a mini spa day for their chickens. They hypothesized that some of the chickens were egg-bound because they weren’t finding as many eggs, so they let the chickens soak in warm water and epsom salt to help them release any lodged eggs. Later they discovered the chickens had found another location to lay eggs!
