Welcome spring chickens
When the Strasburg first graders arrived at school on Wed., May 1, they greeted the first baby chick that hatched from the eggs they were observing this spring in their classroom. By the end of that day, there were six chicks, and as of Fri., May 3, there were 12.
The first graders continue to care for the chicks as they are predicting a few more to hatch. They are feeding them sugar water and regular chicken starter food and keeping them warm with heaters. Mary Baumgartner will be taking them home to their farm at the end of the school year. Kneeling in front with their teacher, Mrs. Huber, are Abby Vetsch and Brock Tougas. Standing, left to right, are Malachi Huber, Joshua Hulm, Addison Wagner, Morgan Huizenga, Mary Baumgartner, Bryann Ternes, Jordyn Heidrich and Cody Baumgartner.
