We started incubating our chicken eggs on April 12, 2016. It takes about 21 days for the chicks to hatch. The children were excited to see 3 “pips” (the 1st hole the chick makes) on Monday morning.
They were even more excited to see our 1st chick hatch when we were doing a Science lesson on frogs! 🙂 The looks on the Kindergartners’ faces were priceless! 2 more chicks were bound and determined to join the fun…and then there were 3!
To our pleasant surprise, 3 more chicks hatched through the night. We were greeted by 6 healthy chicks on Tuesday morning!
Like they say, never count your chickens before they hatch! We thought we were only going to have 6 chicks and we were greeted by 2 more chicks on Wednesday. The Kindergarten students came up with a big list of names and then voted for their favorite. This year’s Kindergarten chicks are: Shinamadooski, Ticklish, Bouncy, Tortchick, Cutie Patootie, Mr. Peepers, Chicken Little and Fluffy Mrs. Boring (out of the mouths of babe 🙂 ).
