First Grade News

grade1Oh my gosh!  The eggs are hatching! On the 24th of May, we went in to Mrs. Stuart’s room and we saw that some of our eggs were hatching! We knew they were ready because there were cracks in the eggs.  The chicks were using their egg tooth to pip out of the egg. When they hatched, they were making a soft peeping noise! They were wet and slimy and they looked like little wet rats. The incubator warmed them and dried their feathers. Now they look cute and fluffy. We are keeping them in a brooder and a heat lamp is keeping them warm and cozy. Soon Mr. Robinson will find them all new homes!
