Chick Cam!

Can you believe it is almost hatching time!!!!! I am elated!! Be sure to check back often to see the progress! (and start thinking of some names!)





UPDATE!
All the eggs have hatched! The brown speckled egg was last to hatch. 6 of the chicks are peeping loud and learning to walk. One of the chicks is pretty weak and is resting alone in the incubator. See you tomorrow! 

Want to see the hatched chicks? Check out our second live feed, the Brooder Cam! 


Day 18

Hello Poultry Experts! Today is Day 18! Nothing new is happening in our egg besides the chick filling up more and more space! I cannot believe that next time you come to school we may have some chicks!!!! I am soooooooo excited! (A little bit nervous too!) 

Here is a picture of Day 18! 



Because I am elated about our chicks, I thought I would give you a sneak peek of what our chicks will look like this weekend...



Be sure to check back over the weekend for our live Pullman Chick Cam!

New Frog Discovered and Day 16


Hello Biologists! Not only is today day 16 of our chick development but a new frog was discovered! This new frog can be found in Costa Rica and is neon green. I looks just like Kermit the frog from the muppets, expect it has VERY special skin! The top of the frog is neon green, while the underside is translucent, which means you can see through it. Take a look, you can see all it's organs!



















Check out the video...





Besides our newest frog friend, our chick friends are getting ready to start hatching. Today they have all their feathers and their scales, claws, and beak are hardened.

Day 15!

Everyday it looks a little more cramped in the eggs! Today I am setting up the brooder, to keep them warm after they hatch...

Today the stomach of our chicks is moving into their belly!

Hello Chicken Experts (also known as Poultry Experts), I found an amazing video of the development of a chicken inside the egg...


Can you believe that our chicks are 1 week old already? Check out what is happening inside our egg today? We can officially candle our eggs to see if they are fertilized... I can't wait!
