The Chicks Have Hatched!

Submitted by sgroll on Thu, 10/19/2017 - 12:07

This semester Ms. Cooper's BSAA class has been studying a chick embryology unit. As of today we have 25 hatched chicks which is about a 75% success rate. They were in the incubator for 21 days before they hatched. All of these eggs must have been fertilized by a rooster in order to develop into a chick (the eggs you purchase from the grocery store will not develop into chicks). As the chicks grow up, they will develop feathers and the BSAA class will be studying animal behavior by observing their pecking order.
