Eighteen pullets — and perhaps the odd rooster — came home to roost in their new coop at the Congregation Bet Shalom Midbar (desert) Farm on March 5. The baby chicks were with four families until they were large enough to occupy the coop, which volunteers built from donated materials. The foster families, farmers, and volunteers were on hand to welcome the birds. Youngsters said their goodbyes as they introduced the chicks to their new home.
