A very sad goodbye...

Today is a very sad day for our class!  The baby chicks are leaving today and going to their new home.  Here are a few (and you know by "a few," I mean A LOT) pictures from this week...
Bella Grace's class came by to see the babies!

This is a picture shortly after we put them in their new box!

We got to hold them!

I love this face!!

How sweet!

I found the cutest life cycle to make.  Some of them are hanging in the gallery and some are in our room!

The kids could not come up with names (we had about 20 for each chicken, and if you vote for the one you suggested, we have a 20-way tie!)!  So here are the names Mrs. Kimbrell came up with that we call them! :)

The "blonde" one is Farrah Fawcett (reasoning--the lab student who came in first on Thursday morning and discovered them, thought of this name and it stuck)!  We just call her Farrah!

This is Little Bit.  She is the tiniest of them all!

Middle child (born right in the middle of the 5).

Bright Eyes--she was the first born and has the biggest eyes.

Big Daddy--he/she has feathers on his/her feet!  And hatched from the big brown egg!

Big Daddy and Little Bit are the best of friends, even putting their wings around each other!!!!

Red Trapazoid saying goodbye!

Blue Circle

Green Triangle

Blue Hexagon

I could NOT resist them in an Easter basket!!!  They weren't too happy though, this was the only picture with all five in the basket!

We've had such a great time with our babies!  We will miss them dearly! :)
Have a great weekend!


  1. We had the pain of loss today too. We had 3 little chickies hatch and today they went to their farm. We named ours Drumstick, Nugget, and Patty. Probably a little sadistic but we had fun coming up with chicken names. We were hoping for a fourth to hatch so we could name it Noodles. Such a great experience for the kids. It's definately something they will never forget about.

  2. Hi your blog! Your lifecycle chicken project is sooo cute. So glad I found you...I'm your newest follower. :o)

  3. Adorable kids and chicks! My past kindergarten partner and I hatched chicks years ago and it was so much fun! Lots of learning too! Thanks for sharing!
