Students at Peninsula Preparatory Academy Charter School were introduced to their newest class pets – eggs! A Farmer from the Chick Hatch Project at Quiver Farms gave a presentation on June 1 to the students in Ms. Abrams kindergarten class on how eggs are hatched. The children learned that chickens lay one egg a day and that the rooster protects the eggs from other farm animals. One dozen eggs were placed in an incubator. The students were in charge of taking care of the chicks prior to hatching. It took approximately five days for the eggs to hatch. After the chicks hatched, they were returned to the farm.
