Hi all!

I'm a kindergarten teacher in Florida and we've just entered our Plants and Animals unit in Science and I am just dying to get to hatch some babies with the kiddos. I've got everything I need for the hatching except the eggs.

Does anyone know a nice non-stinky thing to hatch? Or less stinky than most? I would love to keep the peeps in the room for a few days but if the smell is unmanageable I'm not going to be able to do that. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

! Great to have you with us! Classroom hatching is a great lesson! Baby chicks really aren't too stinky as they don't have a lot of "out put" during those first few days of life. Might want to make sure you have a home lined up for them in advance. One word of caution: hatching eggs are readily available online but the success rate of eggs that travel through the mail is pretty low. Might want to find some locally. In the link below find the FL thread and post there if you wish.

Also, check in at the Incubating/Hatching thread for advice and encouragement along the way. Best wishes!
