I was talking to my science teacher about hatching eggs in the class after the EOG'S. And she said she would love to have a lab full of little chicks. So I have the Incubator and I have the Fertile eggs. I may even talk to a friend of mine about seeing if I can get him to surrender some of his Barred EE's. 1.) I would have to start them about a week in advance so that we can squeeze it into school. which really is not a problem. 2.) school is about 2 miles (3 minute drive ) down the road. would transportation if done really carefully be ok considering a mother hen will take anywhere from 30-45 minute breaks to eat and relieve herself ? 3.) I do not have an auto turner, would it absolutely destroy the eggs if they were not turned on weekends or at the minimum once ? I know some days I just completely forget to do it and they end up ok. 4.) She said that she had no idea how to do it so I would have to teach the classes. How does one go about teaching, rude, slightly violent, most of whom probably wont listen, teenagers. (I really do not sugar coat the way most of the kids my age act. ) about hatching and raising chicks. when they found out I had pet chickens they asked when I was going to have fried chicken. They sometimes scare me, this being my first and last year of middle school I kinda missed the whole social thing. in my opinion was probably a good thing. So how does the kid with a 100% Science average teach the science of incubation ?
