“Chick Fever” In Room 10
  • Before the eggs arrived we:
    • Plugged in and set up the incubator
    • placed the thermometer in and set the temperature to 100 degrees.
  • We learned that the incubator takes the place of the hen

End

the eggs arrived
The Eggs Arrived
  • On Tuesday, March 12, 2002 we received 10 eggs
  • First, we put X’s on one side and O’s on the other
  • Then, numbered them 1-10
  • We set up a nurturing schedule so everyone helped take care of the eggs
  • Every hour we turned them so they wouldn’t get stuck to one side of the shell

End

handling tips
Handling Tips
  • Treat them like an infant - Be gentle!
  • Be sure there’s water so the inside of the egg stays moist
  • Check the temperature! It should be between 99.5-100.5 degrees
  • Wash your hands when you are finished

End

what we learned
What we learned
  • Chicks started out as an embryo
  • Inside the shell the chick’s food is the yolk
  • The temperature has to stay between 99.5-100.5
  • Chicks get air from tiny holes in the shell
  • The chick floats in a sac called the amnion sac
  • We received the eggs at the 14th day of incubation
  • It takes the chick 21 days to hatch
  • They used their egg tooth to get out of their shell

they re hatching
They’re Hatching

Click on the chick for a diagram

  • First, two eggs had pecks in them
  • After a few hours the chick started to peck their way out
  • During the night five chicks hatched
  • Two more hatched the next day
  • The next day two more hatched after we left
  • The chicks were really tired and wet
  • A couple hours later the chick gets fluffy and active
  • Then, we put the chicks in a box with a light to keep them warm

End

how we felt
How We Felt
  • We felt really happy and relieved because nine chicks hatched
  • The MOST Mrs. Henry’s class ever had
  • It was so much fun to play with them
  • They felt soft and furry
  • They were fragile and light
  • Hearing them peeping all day was cool

End

after the hatching
After the Hatching
  • Fed them cornmeal
  • Gave them water in little cups
  • They fell asleep on top of each other
  • Named them: Henry, Spike, Gasman, Rocko, Rocky, Pokey, Meanie, Whitey and Devil
  • Played with them on the mats
  • Changed their paper towels
  • Held them carefully
  • Visitors - Miss DeLiberty’s Class, Mrs. Meenan’s Class, The Marinelli

End

our favorite parts
Our Favorite Parts
  • Seeing the chicks because they seemed like family
  • Holding, feeding and watching them together
  • Stephen saw a chick hatch - “That was amazing!” he said.
