November 7, 2019


(upbeat country music) – I’m Miss Penny, and these
are the KidVision kids. And we’re here today to
find out about farm animals. – Hi, guys, my name is Farmer Ashley. – Hi, Farmer Ashley. – How are you guys doing this morning? – Good. – Now what we’re gonna start
off with is with our birds. Do you guys eat eggs in the morning? – Yes. – And what color are these eggs? – White. – White? Well the eggs
that we have on our farm that our chicken lay are different colors. We have brown, green, pink, and blue eggs that the chickens lay, all different colored eggs. – How often do chickens lay eggs? – Every day. – Every day?
– Yeah, every day we get our eggs from the chicken coop. Sometimes we have enough
to go in the incubator, or we have them so that we
can eat them in the morning. The next egg I have is a turkey egg. See that? – Yeah. – Is it bigger than the other eggs? – It is bigger than the chicken egg. See the difference? – Yes. – It also has brown freckles on it. That’s how I know that it’s a turkey egg, ’cause of all the brown freckles. The next egg I have is a duck egg. This here is a duck egg. It is larger than the chicken egg if you wanna compare them, see? Larger, it’s a lot stronger,
and it is always white. It’s never a different color. – That looks like a big egg. – Yes, this is the largest
egg we have on our farm. What kind of egg is this do you think?
– Goose. – A goose, you’re right! – Wow, good job!
– This is a goose egg. Mother Goose laid this egg. – Wow, Mother Goose does lay big eggs! And she tells good fairytales too. (Ashley laughs) – It’s a lot stronger, because
the goose and the ducks, their eggs have to be strong, ’cause they lay their eggs near rocks. – Terrific, can we see
what the chicks look like when they come to the (mumbles).
– Yes, we can. – Great. Are you ready to see some chickens? – Yeah! – All right. – Well now we’re in the bird
pen, and these are the eggs. And what are those? – These are chicks. These are baby chickens. We call them chicks. Would you guys like to hold them? – Yes.
– All right. You gotta be very, very gentle. They’re very small. (chicks peeping) What kind of noises do they make? – They make little cheep, peep noise. – Little peep, peep, peep, yep. – [Miss Penny] Who are their mommies? – Yes, I have a mommy
chicken and a daddy chicken. Now this dark brown one
right here in my hand is a mommy chicken. She is called a hen. – [Miss Penny] A hen. – The daddy chicken on
this side is a rooster. (children laughing)
I know the difference, because if you see right
on the top of his head he has a crown. It’s called a crown or a comb. His is a lot larger than the mommy’s. This is a mommy’s right here. Hers is smaller. This is his wattle. She also has a wattle. Hers is a lot smaller than the daddy’s. Now if you see all over their body, they have feathers, right? – Yes. – And they have wings so they can fly. They can fly wherever they wanna go. All right, guys.
– Oh, that is a big bird. – This is a very big bird. His name is Tom. Can we say hi to Tom? – Hi, Tom! – Now Tom here is male turkey. I know that he is a male,
because he has this beard here. This is his beard.
(children laughing) This hair we use for paint brushes. So this hair is very useful to us. We can make regular
brushes or paint brushes with this hair. If you guys wanna feel
it, feel how hard it is? (turkey gobbles) All right, so here I
have a duck and a goose. Can you guys tell me
which one the goose is? – This one? – This one, she is larger. I know that she’s a goose, because she’s a lot larger than the duck. She has a larger neck, a larger body, and also larger webbed feet. Now their feathers are very, very soft. They have this oil in
their feathers called down. This down, it makes
their feathers very soft, and it helps them to float on the water, ’cause they like to swim. – This has been great! We learned about eggs. We learned about the chicks. And we learned about the parent bird. – If you guys will follow me, I got a surprise for you guys. – Yes. – All right, guys, so we’re
gonna learn the difference between ponies and horses. The difference between horses and ponies is their size, their height. Ponies are measured with hands. This is a measurement of a hand. We measure them from
the bottom of their hoof all the way to their
withers right up here. So if I were to, here, measure Salty, I would start here and come up. So that’s one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, 10, 11, about 11 and a half hands he is. – Let’s see how many hands you are, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15. – So she would be considered a horse, ’cause 14 hands and above is a horse. 14 hands and below is a pony. – I think we’re ready for some pony rides. – [Ashley] All right, we’re
gonna line up on the stands right over there. – Okay, we’re going. (Ashley laughs) (upbeat country music) – All right, guys, so right now we are at the milking station. This here is a mommy goat. Mommy goats are called nannies or does. The daddies are called bucks or billies, and the babies are called
kids, just like you guys. Now I know that this here is a mommy, ’cause she has this udder here. This is her udder. At the end of her udder,
she has these two teats. These are her teats. This is where a baby gets their milk. Now we all washed our hands, correct? – Yeah! – Awesome, ’cause we gotta
have our hands washed before we touch where the
baby gets their milk from. So what I’m gonna do is I’m
gonna hold the udder here, and you’re gonna squeeze here
and have the milk come out. You’re gonna use your pinchy fingers. Can I see pinchy fingers? All right, we’re gonna go one at a time, and we’re gonna get the milk out. – It doesn’t hurt her? – No, it feels good for her. – [Miss Penny] And pinch, oh! Look at that. (upbeat country music) – [Narrator] Let’s play
a farm animal game. Listen and name these animals. (rooster crows) Rooster. (hen clucks) Hen. (goat bleating) Goat. (donkey braying) Donkey. (duck quacking) Duck. (pig oinking) Pig. (turkey gobbling) Turkey. (horse neighing) Horse. (cow mooing) Cow. – Bye. Let’s go. (upbeat country music)
