The chicks have arrived! For the past several weeks, the fourth grade has been incubating chicken eggs in their classrooms. This week, the students watched as their eggs began to hatch! Only once the chicks had completely hatched, dried and fluffed up could the classes take them out of the incubator and move them to the brooder, where they would have more room to move around under a special heat lamp. This study was done in partnership with the local 4H, who came to MED on Thursday to collect the chicks and bring them to their new home.
