The last time I posted about the chickens they were hatching and still in the incubator. In these first two pictures it is two days later and they are out of the incubator but still spending most of their day under warming lamps. This is what it looks like when the gang is all together:
They also spend short amounts of time out of the cage:
You can see that they are going to have to grow into their feet a bit. They do grow fast. Here are a few shots from the next day:
And two more from the day after that:
The chickens in this post are between 3 and 5 days old. They are currently living in a second grade classroom where they are being observed as part of a life cycle unit. If you would like to see what they looked like while they were developing, click here to see my post. While they are is the classroom the children have been filling out chicken journals, keeping track of the chickens since they were eggs. In a few days the chickens will be moving on to various local farms. I will post again before they are moved just so you can see how fast they grow.
