THE EGGThe Egg Will Turn Into A Chick After 21 Days If…
KEEPING WARM!• The Eggs Are Kept Warm• Usually The Hen Sits On The Eggs ToKeep Them Warm
INCUBATOR• However, We Cannot Use A Hen So We Will Use AnIncubatorWhyCantI KeepThemWarm?
WHAT THIS MEANS• An Incubator Keeps Things At The CorrectTemperature. Can You Think Of Anywhere AnIncubator Could Be Used? Think Of LittleBabies• Our Incubator Will Keep The Eggs At TheCorrect Temperature For The Chicks To Grow
THE INCUBATOR• We Have To Turn The IncubatorThree Times A Day To Make SureThe Temperature Is Even
THE SHELL• The Eggs Hard Shell Protects The Baby As ItGrows• When The Chick Is Ready To Hatch It Will PeckAt The Shell With Its Beak Until The Egg Cracks
HATCHING TIME• Slowly The Chick Will Come Out From The Egg. This Can SometimesTake Up To A Day!• The Chick Is Wet When It Hatches From The Egg• The Chicks Feathers Will Dry Quickly And Soon Will Become Nice AndFluffyBEFORE AFTER
STAYING WARM• The chicks must be kept warm for the next fewweeks• We will use an infra – red lamp to keep themwarm
THEIR NEW HOME• We will then feed them well andlook for a good home to go to
