A first hand account of the hatchings, written by Grade 5 Student, Kacee
We all came to school on December 7th, to the news that a chick was hatching. When I came off the bus in the morning everyone ran up to me and said "eggs are hatching". When we came into the class, we all went over to the incubator and there was a crack in one of the eggs. After that, we did some work until the Assistant Principal, Mr Hans, came in and said "it is out of its shell". Mr Graeme called Mr Callum, our chicken expert, and he helped put the chick into the brooder. The brooder is a Tupperware bin with towels on the floor and food and a water dish. While we were all looking at the chick, another student, was looking in the incubator and she said "another egg has cracked"! Around an hour later, it hatched. and now they are fluffy and happy.
