Last Friday morning we candled all the eggs and think there are 21 eggs that are fertilized. After candling the eggs we sent them blessings and good wishes as we removed the incubator from the rocker and turned the humidity up as high as we could for the eggs remaining three days. We are hoping that they hatch on January 30th or perhaps the 1st or 2nd. Frosty and Storm have discovered the ancient art of flying and are also super happy in their new brooder! After the new hatch hopefully each class will be able to spend some time with the new chicks.

Mr. Graeme's grade 5/6 class now received 27 new eggs from Mr. Callum. We received these eggs January 9th when Mr. Callum came in to meet with the class. These new eggs are "old English Bantam eggs" as well as "buckeyes" like our current chicken "Frosty". Frosty and Storm are quite big now and we will be moving them into the high school's green house so they can move to larger brooder!
