Fresh egg on the grounds of MSU Tollgate Farm

MSU Tollgate Farm & Education Center on Camp TV!

Chickens, Chickens, Chickens!

What is the role of a chicken on a farm? And how is a chicken connected to the rest of the living things around us? Ellen Koehler, Program Instructor and Education Coordinator at the MSU Tollgate Farm and Education Center, gives viewers an up-close look at the role chickens play on a farm and explains how they relate to other living organisms around us. Plus, learn about the important parts of an egg and follow along with Ellen as she conducts an egg dissection!

Offering views of beautiful rolling farmland, Tollgate Farm and Education center is a historic 160-acre farmstead, owned by MSU and the Americana Foundation. The educational farm site includes a working farm with animals, community gardens, and sustainable agriculture demonstrations and hosts 4-H youth programs, school and community programs, and many opportunities for youth and families to engage with agriculture and the natural environment.
