The chicks arrived last week, and they are precious and perfect!
We started with 30 eggs, and ended with 16 healthy, fully developed baby chicks (this was very successful!). On Friday, we returned the chicks to the 4-H program; from there, they were placed with a local, small farm.
The Edible Schoolyard Greensboro staff LOVED this project, and we can’t wait to participate again next year. In other chicken news: on June 5th we’ll be receiving our new, day-old laying hens! We’ve hand-picked some special breeds that are known for their gentle temperament and beautiful hues of eggs. Stay tuned for more information, and thanks for learning about embryology with us!
