We've HaTcHeD!!!


We've hatched y'all! And woo wee, were these kiddos excited! Our hatch actually started 2 days before we were expecting and by the time it was all said and done, we had 13 out of 14 eggs hatch. Not too bad! Some years almost all of the eggs hatch during the night, but not this time! Oh no! Only one chick had hatched by the time the kids arrived in the classroom in the morning and we spent the rest of the day watching 12 more lil chickies work their way into the world. Watching the kids' faces as the chicks worked {for sometimes hours} to break out of those shells, was priceless!
Well it's time to get my own lil "chickies" to bed-Monday morning will be here before we know it. And I just heard that Monday's forecast includes a lil sleet & snow! Aughhhh! Hasn't anyone told winter that spring is here!?!? Gotta love that Missouri weather! :)

    1. We are fortunate to have incubators for each classroom that someone actually made for us. And we get the fertilized eggs from the University of MO extension center. They are kind of expensive but we usually have a very successful hatch!

    1. One of the teachers in our building raises chickens so she usually takes them all. Occasionally a student's parents request to take them home. This is allowed if they are all staying together & have a suitable place to care for them. Some students want to just take one home as a pet! Haha!! (We do NOT do that!)

    1. We are in central MO so we have lots of families that live in rural areas and can give our little chickies a good home! :)
