Which comes first? Chicken or the egg

This is a question that many people ponder.  With the help of Kentucky Farm Bureau, Mrs. Ingram’s and Mrs. Lawson’s classes had the opportunity to learn more about this question. 

A grant opportunity was offered by Kentucky Farm Bureau as a way to incorporate agriculture in the classroom.  With the money received from the grant, an incubator and other instructional materials were purchased to allow our students to have a hands-on learning experience with the baby chicks.

The eggs were donated to our classes by Barbara Rogers.  We received the eggs on April 15 and 21 days later, we were having a birthday party for the arrival of our chicks! 

First two hatched.  Then four more hatched. By the next morning, we had eight chicks.  We had a total of eleven chicks born.
