Miss Goff's first grade class got some chicken eggs, incubated them for several weeks, and watched them hatch right in the classroom! Chase loved checking on the chickens every day and watching them grow. It was such an educational experience for him in many ways. They even learned about coping with death when some of the chicks didn't survive. He really really really wanted us to 'adopt' one of them but he will have to be satisfied with seeing chickens at the Thanksgiving Point Farm rather than in his back yard. Chase loves animals and would have one of every kind if we let him. I told him when he's older he can work at the Zoo!
