Our baby chicks!

We have been learning a lot about life cycles this spring, and we were lucky enough to be able to raise baby chicks! We got eggs from the university, when they were 18 days into incubation. Eggs typically hatch after 21 days, and we got to witness it! Once they got their downy fur, the kindergarteners were able to hold them for a brief moment.

I wish we could keep them for longer, but since our classroom isn't a great permanent home for chickens, we found a home for these five on a local farm. Here are some pictures of us studying the chicks!
