    HI there, yes, I do hatch them with my first-graders as often and as long as the teachers next door can handle the peeping! :) We have an open concept school with no back walls or doors.
    I figure that if I am hatching, they might as well enjoy. And, they just love it! I have had many parents in tears, saying that they have never witnessed this before! It is so special!

    I am very excited about the contests. How fun!

    As I was turning the eggs this evening, I decided to shine the light on them, I was very surprised!! Day 3 and we were able to see what I assume is a little heart beating!!! The kids loved it. 17 of the 18 serama eggs have veining and one we aren't sure about yet. So exciting!!!

    This newcomer says THANKS! And I hear ya... My first hatch was a complete fiasco, this second hatch is making me crazy.... It's day 20 And I haven't heard a peep or a pip..... And the 33rd hatch is a batch my neighbor brought over... I will feel terrible if they don't make it because of my learning curve.

    I just got the 8 chicks. The last one has improved a little. It can't stand or walk. It keeps rolling onto it's back but the fluid is gone from it's lungs. I really don't think it's gonna make it but I'll give it some time.
