Our incubator is now playing host to 12 lovely eggs.  11 brown and 1 white shelled eggs.  Today was day 2 in their 21 day cycle:


We use HovaBator incubators and got ours from Frey Scientific.  The eggs came from a friends’ farm. 🙂

Because we are learning all about the chicken life cycle, I used some of my K blogging friends chicken themed products.



This awesome emergent reader is from my blogging friend Maria.  She creates the most amazing readers and sells them on her TPT site. 🙂  This reader is called, “Now the chick grows.”  Here are my kiddos cutting the letters out and spelling “now” in their readers. photo

The Quails!

To be different this year, I decided to hatch quail eggs instead chicken eggs. One of my team members got chicken and quail eggs from her parents farm and we are waiting patiently for them to hatch! Next Wednesday is the big day, if all goes well!


Tis picture was taken pre incubator. Aren’t they cute? They will be the size of your thumb when they hatch! If anyone knows any great books about quail, I’d love to know! I ordered the only one I could find suitable for young children and it was from a publishing company in the UK!
