Strasburg first graders waiting for chicks to hatch
The Strasburg First Graders are using an incubator to hatch chicks. They are keeping an eye on 37 eggs as they marked where each egg came from and the breed. The eggs were from a relative of First Grade Teacher Mrs. Huber, High School Teacher Mrs. Kim Droog and through a website, mypetchicken.com. The students are candling some of the eggs with a flashlight on days 7, 12 and 18 to see what is happening. The students candled some on Wed., April 17, which was day 7, and they were so excited to find some eggs were developing. They also found some that were not. The students are recording their findings every day in their egg hatching observation journals and are hoping to see chicks by May 1. With their teacher, Mrs. Huber, are, kneeling, left to right, Brock Tougas, Mary Baumgartner, Jordyn Heidrich and Joshua Hulm; standing, Abby Vetsch, Cody Baumgartner, Shauna Lauinger, Addison Wagner, Morgan Huizenga, Malachi Huber and Bryann Ternes.
The students are candling their eggs weekly to chart the development of the future chicks.
