If you remember, awhile back, we tried to hatch some chicken eggs. Unfortunately, we were not successful and we borrowed a couple of chicks from grandpa's farm to observe. This weekend, we brought them back to the farm. The children really enjoyed watching them for about two weeks. Part of farming and learning about life is that things don't always work out, but in order to be successful, you need to be persistent. So, we came home with another batch of eggs and put our incubator going. Hopefully we will have better luck with hatching some chicks of our own this time. (We will know in approximately 21 days!)
If you have been following the blog, you also know that we have been out on a hunt to find some frog eggs. This weekend, grandpa was also able to help us find some from his pond! We were able to harvest a clump of them and will be watching them as they hatch and turn into frogs.
The children are going to be so excited when they come in tomorrow morning!
