This is a spring project for my kids taking my Humanities course. They are seniors in high school, but amazingly excited to be taking this on. The babies already have a home to go to after we have hatched and done some raising of the little ones (my neighbor has caught the bug...was raised on a chicken farm and is excited to have his own). Now, should I buy an incubator or make one? Is there 1 brand that is better than others? Is there one design for self made better than others? Egg turner? I am thinking I should get one so that I can leave the incubator in the classroom over the weekends. I do have keys, and would have access in and out to check on them. Candling? Do I do this daily, weekly? Do I have to do it? I know there would be an education aspect to it, but I don't want to be pulling one egg out every hour (meaning 5 eggs so I can rotate the candling exercise). I do have worksheets that show the progress of the growth inside the egg. I think these are all my questions for now. But I am thinking about starting in 1 month, and want to start gathering everything I will need. And still have to pass it by the principal. I was told I don't have to, but live animals in a classroom seems like that might need some administrative alerting.
