    Here are a couple of picks of babies hatched in my classroom. We held them (taking turns with supervision for 5 minutes between 20 children and 5 chicks) and they're just too cute for words! The pics with the students are even better, although I can't post those!

    They're 2 weeks old, and it was their last day in the classroom before they moved to a student's house. I told the mom about this site! [​IMG]

    Thanks for enjoying them with me! [​IMG]

    The eggs came from one of my student's Grandmother's farm. Ameraucana (sp?) rooster and mixed hens and the eggs were pale blue. The dark one came from a brown egg I purchased from the CETA foundation, a vet parent at my school, who's son is in another class. She delivered the eggs! [​IMG]

    I teach at a public school in Davis, CA. We're allowed 6 hens in town, and more and more families are getting really interested in having backyard chickens! At my school are many staff that have small farms outside of city limits, and they take the roos. We also have a small coop, and the chickens in there belong to one of our gardening aides. She wants to take her birds home, so she asked me if I wanted to provide the school chickens. Heck, yeah!!!

    So I've gone plain crazy, and am expecting about 30 eggs of different varieties to hatch in my new Genesis 1588, arriving at about the same time!! [​IMG]
