We tried to hatch some eggs this month. We got some eggs from the farmer. We put them in a incubator. The incubator works like a mother hen sitting on her eggs. During the month we checked how the eggs were growing by shining a bright light through them. We knew that 1 of our 7 eggs was not growing the way it should. We waited the 21 days it takes for the eggs to hatch. Unfortunately only 1 egg hatched properly and even the chick that hatched did not live very long. We could see that the chicks had grown well in some of the other eggs, but for some reason they did not hatch properly. It was an interesting lesson.
