VALLEJO — The little yellow chicks peeped under the heat lamp as Mia Whitman gently put out her hand to touch the soft down that covered the babies.
“They’re so cute,” said Mia, 8, a third-grader from Suisun Elementary School. “I’d love to have one.”
Crowded up front with Mia were her friends, Whitney Jefferson, 8, and Tianna Sanderson, 9. Another dozen or so third-graders jockeyed for position behind them, trying to see the chicks at the 11th annual Ag Day at the Solano County Fairgrounds.
