Need websites for students please?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi folks,, the time grows nearer! I'd love to put together a list of websites for the students to access to learn about incubation, hatching, candling, all the neat things that have to do with bringing a new feathered life into the world. I imagine there are several others who could use the info too.
If you have a good site or even just one that has a little info on it could you post it on here or send it to me via email? I was pleased to discover that at least for now I can access this site from school!

If you aren't living for something, you are dying for nothing.

Don't trouble Trouble until Trouble troubles you!
My lady be wary and heed to the lines of this verse: To let a fool kiss you is stupid, to let a kiss fool you is worse.

Of course, I'm rather partial to my blog and ChickNCam (links below in my signature).  They aren't 'educational' per-se, but do let kids see real live chickens in their natural habititat that aren't (shocking) production whites.

I did an incubator project with my 2nd grade son's class.  Some links are below that I found useful...
