Teaching Chicks to Eat

The chicks need to learn how to eat and drink. We dip their beaks in the water and they put their little heads up to let the water run down their throats. Here they are learning how to eat through observation. Hey, they are fast learners ~ except for the one who falls in head first. Slow down a little buddy.

The students love to hold the chicks and the teachers do too. Everyone from the whole school stops in to see our chicks. We are so proud of our great hatch of all twleve! We show off our chicks and tell visitors all about them. Some visitors are afraid to hold chicks. The students giggle. They are experts at gently holding the chicks and settleing them down in their small hands. The chicks bring a special sparkle to each student's eye. The chicks like the students too; they are very curious.

We hatched chicks in our elementary school. Twelve eggs were delivered to us by Quiver Farms. Farmer Green brought the eggs from his farm and dramatically told all of the students about the responsibilites of hatching chicks. He taught the students about the incubator, the brooder box, and what chicks eat. Farmer Green told the students what to expect on the hatch date. He explained how a chick uses its egg tooth to chips through the shell as it works to make a pip-hole. He also showed the classes a rooster named, Patrick, and a hen named, Sandy. He taught us some new vocabular words like: comb, waddle, pin-feathers, and cackle. It was an excellent experience. Now, you can ask any of our students about chicks!
