The chicks will be returning to the farm tomorrow : (. We held and observed both of them today. We found that they grew overnight, their wings are getting darker and their combs are starting to come out. It is amazing how much they change in just a few days. Check out the chick pics to see the kids holding them!
Our second egg hatched today, named Chicky-wicky by our class. They are staying the weekend at my house and will be back next week to see the kids again!
Peep, our first egg has hatched!! See our chick pics section to meet him/her!!!
Our chicks are coming on Thursday April 19! We will get three eggs and incubate them for 21 days until they hatch. We are estimating they will hatch around May 10. Stay tuned for pictures and info!!
The eggs in the incubator:
Our eggs have arrived, and are in our classroom incubators. Inside these eggs, the chicks are growing. They stay inside the eggs for about 21 days.
Here is a picture and video of what a chick looks like inside the egg, and how it changes over time:
