From eggs to chicks!

After 3 long weeks of watching over our eggs in the incubator, the BUGS students were able to see the first pip (a chick's first hole in her egg) in the first egg and the next day watched a baby chick hatch! On Monday night the first four eggs hatched and Tuesday during the day four more baby chicks hatched! Now there are 13 baby chicks for the BUGS students to watch over. Some of the baby chicks will go back to live with Ms. Karen in Virginia but some will stay here and live at BUGS! We are all excited to watch them grow!
Eggs and baby chicks that have just hatched in the incubator!
Just one day old and keeping warm in the brooder!

Yesterday we held our baby chicks for the first time!
