Spring is right around the corner! One of my favorite activities/ lessons to do in the springtime is to hatch chicks. I am very excited to be able to bring this experience to Goshen Center School this year. It’s a great way to teach life cycles to young children and to bring some fun and excitement into the classrooms as well.
The incubator will be set up in a centralized location and teachers will have the opportunity to bring their students to watch and learn about the process and life cycle of a chicken.
I am looking for families that already have chickens (and a rooster) who would like to donate some fertilized eggs to put in the incubator. I will need about 9 eggs. I am also looking for some families interested in adopting the baby chicks about a week after they hatch. More than likely, not all of the eggs will hatch, but we will have somewhere between 6 -9 chicks that will need a home. The estimated timeline for this project is April 18th - May 8th, which chicks being ready to go to their new home around May 15th.
If you are interested and able to help with this project please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you so much!
