The first graders of St. Paul Lutheran School in Serbin have been learning about life cycles in science, and one of the ways they learn is by hatching out baby chicks using a variety of colorful eggs from Weise Farms.
We are so happy to see the joy in these smiling faces. It is such a pleasure that our eggs have been part of this learning experience for the past two years, and we look forward to the years ahead.
The success of this hatch is even more appreciated because the incubator had been accidentally unplugged for about 14 hours while the classroom was being cleaned, allowing some of the eggs to cool down. Thirty Six eggs were placed in the incubator, and 19 chicks hatched, even after the unfortunate incident. The resiliency of hatching eggs continues to amaze us.
It is always an exciting day in the classroom when hatch day is here. After a few days in the classroom, the chicks get to come home to Weise Farms to grow up and start laying more beautifully colored eggs.
Thank you all for your interest in our blog and our involvement with schools in the community.
