Chicks

We are so lucky to have witnessed these chicks hatching! Ms Mc Grath brought in her incubator and we watched the process. It is very important to maintain temperature, humidity and ventilation in the incubator so the teachers have been monitoring these factors closely.

It takes roughly 21 days for an egg to hatch once incubation occurs.  So far, 17 out of the 20 eggs have hatched! They are so cute!

The chicks will spend a few more days in the incubator before moving to a brooder, where it will spend the first few weeks of their lives!
