Use the Scavenger Hunt poem below and photograph as many items as you can locate, throughout the store and warehouse.
Take a photo of...
A seedling in bloom
Of a tree you'd groom,
A rabbit or a hare,
A Funky hen and rooster pair.
Can you find the rooster, Willie Crow?
How about garden seeds you can sow?
Find the tanks, buckets and watering supplies,
So your plants and poultry never run dry.
Chicken towels, cups, and housewares
To make your chicken pot pie.
Photograph your favorite hat for the sun,
Clothes for when the rains run,
Find hardware and tools
to build gardens and coops.
Live chickens and chicks,
Roosters, goats that lick,
Fencing posts you can stick
Ready to go home lickety split!
