Uncle Bob Beringer has been letting the hens of the Sharecropper Farm keep a few eggs to lay on each spring for the past few years. Until now, he has never had any luck in his chicken hatching endeavors.
“I was hoping the mother hen would keep sitting on her eggs and hatch a bunch of babies for our spring guests to meet, but so far we only have the one baby chick,” said Beringer. “He is cute as a button, and all the children want to see him.”
Come out to the George Ranch Historical Park to meet the new arrival. The Park is open Tuesday through Saturday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Admission is just $10 for adults, $9 for seniors 62+, $5 for children ages 5-15, and children ages 4 and under and members are always free. Visit during “A Break in Time” Spring Break celebrations, happening now through March 22, to experience special seasonal hands-on activities in games.
