It’s Chick Season in Third Grade!
Guess what!! Mrs. Rowe’s and Mrs. Binder’s third graders hatched chicks this Spring! Mrs. Rowe brought in some eggs from her flock. Here are the answers to some questions you might have about the project.
Q: Why did you choose chickens to hatch?
A:Mrs. Rowe has been doing this for about three years and thought it would be fun.
Q: How long did it take for them to hatch
A: The eggs were put in the incubator for 21 days. Two of the chicks hatched a
day early, one hatched a day late.
Q: Are you going to name them?
A:Yes, we already named two and will name the rest.
Q: What are going to do after you bring them home?
A: I will watch them grow and when they get bigger they will join the other chickens at my house.
One of the chicks, the late one, had trouble getting out of it’s egg. We think it has Rye neck which is caused by a vitamin deficiency. It can be fixed by giving the chick vitamins. So, that is what they are doing.
