We've had a great time anticipating our chicks! My students have collected and recorded data (temperature and humidity) and have faithfully turned, turned, turned the eggs. After twenty-one days, right on schedule, we had three chicks hatch today and expect more tomorrow! Their little chirps are so sweet and outdoorsy-sounding. Our 4-H rep will come this week and collect these little cuties for delivery to local farmers - for pets, I'm sure! :)
Will I do this again next year? I think so! I'd love to hear about your own experiences incubating chicks. Do you have suggestions on how to make it go better? Take care, all, and Happy Spring!
Aaaand...We Have Chicks!
