Eggciting news!!!!!

Sunday was day 21 in our hatching adventure!  I stopped by around 2:00 to check on them and we had ONE chick!!!!!!  I was so excited!!!  As we came in this morning, on day 22, we had one more chick to hatch.  We are still holding out hope for the other 12 eggs!  We will give them until Wednesday or Thursday before we lose hope!  Here are a few pictures of our chicken adventures...
Our one little chick, who the children have already named "Chirpy," when I came on Sunday!
Gates and Avery watching the chicks.

Chirpy and Nemo
Nemo is the brown chick.  One of his wings is significantly smaller than the other.  This is causing some MAJOR balance issues.  We hope they are just balance issues, and not signs of not making it!  

Sorry for the cords. I bought a clear container so we could see the chicks easier, but the cords aren't the most aesthetically pleasing!

Our chart showing the development inside the egg each day.  We had each egg covered up with the number on the front.  Each day the helpers got to take the egg off to show the class what's happening inside!

Here are our remaining eggs!  We hope they will hatch!!!

We began a chick observation journal!  Here are a few pictures...

Happy Hatching! :)
