Homeschooling Worksheets for Incubating Eggs

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 

Hi,
I've been looking online, but must not be googling the right words (I'm tired).  Does anyone who homeschools have a website or worksheets they would not mind sharing with me and my children?  We just got our Genesis 1588 and should be getting our eggs soon.  This will be our first hatching.  We will be hatching Turkeys and chickens.

We are just doing our first hatch too and it's been an amazing journey!  Our first chick (of 8) just hatched in the night and we are not seeing anything else yet, but our hatch date is tomrrow (saturday), so this little one was early.  But she was completely ready and now lonely!

I got a lot of good information here http://pubs.ext.vt.edu/category/poultry.html and then I also ordered the 4-H embryology curriculum.  It was really good.  We even did a window experiment with one of them and she lived 2 days longer than anything said was expected.

Now I'm trying to find info on chick behavior after they hatch.  Our one little one was really noisy after hatch and is now sleeping peacefully, but I'm worried about if she's ok or not.

All the best with your hatch!

Thanks.  I also bought the Embryology curriculum from 4-H along with the chart.  I'm guessing it should be here by Monday.  So you really liked the curriculum?  I was wondering if it would have enough information.  I looked in the library for books on incubation, but the only ones I found were too complicated for me to understand for the most part so I knew the children would not understand it either.

Well I hope the rest of your babies hatch out OK?  How is that first little one doing so far?

lol awesome!

We didn't do much the first time around .. just the parts of the egg and candling... my son joined a 4-h group this year and it specializes in chickens and showing chickens called Fancy Feathers we have really enjoyed it so far! clap

our first hatch went perfect (we had a broody so 13 out of 14 eggs hatched!) they where all just mix breed chickens. One however became ill with a respiratory infection and we had to cull (another learning experience) but we found a good quick and clean method that made it much easier....
 
This last time we didn't have a broody and used and incubator and only got 2 out of 23 sad so that was not a fun hatch.

This time they are due 4/20 and they are their own chicken and duck eggs so fl hopefully it will go better! The last batch was shipped so I am thinking something went wrong in shipping.

they say I have A.D.D. but they don't understand.....OH look!! a chicken!!

Hello fellow homeschoolers,this is great.Whenever my hubby is on I am always wanting to know who homeschools.Well Ifound some of you. I just found this website where all homeschoolers are welcomed to post any of there pdfs so I found a egg journal on there.Just type in what your looking for,if any problems please email me. We need to make a homeschool forum on here that would rock for us.

We have been hatching for several years now and my son(9) knows more than I.We usually keep the incubator in the classroom so whenever we hear something going on we STOP big_smile and listen.This is one reason we LOVE;) to Homeschool.
