    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!

    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...
