PARKER - The Pioneer Elementary School in Parker is helping to cheer on the Broncos
On Thursday five chickens dressed in orange and blue outfits were on display in the school’s library.
School staff helped to build a custom football stadium enclosure to display the barn animals.

Assistant Principal Kirsten Bloomfield says the children have been caring for the chickens since the beginning of the year as part of a school sustainability effort.
“It really provides the students with an experience they can’t get at other schools,” Bloomfield said.
The school sells the eggs the chicken lay to teachers and other community members to raise funds for caring for the birds.
Dressing them up in Bronco colors is just another way to bring fun to the project.
“We just felt like we wanted to show the Broncos our support,” Bloomfield said.
