ALPINE COMMUNITY, Miss. (WTVA) -- You could say Micah Taylor knows her chickens.
Each of her twenty chickens has a name.
Taylor is one of nine 4-H Club members who are raising chickens this summer.
The project called "Chicken Chain" began the first week of June.
Each child takes them home and begins taking care of them from chick to maturity.
"They're really cute as babies and you really get hooked to them. It's really fun to know how much they've grown and to see how much people like them-to have them," Taylor said.
"To go from a tiny baby chick to where she's a laying hen is only about a three month process, so it's just a lot of fun to watch them go through the different stages," Giachelli said.
The children will be selling their hens at the Tupelo Farmers Market September 15.
