This is no better way to get in the mood for spring than with a real life science lesson in hatching eggs! This project is a great way to introduce life cycles or just a fun classroom or homeschool project! My children did this as part of homeschool science.

I do not include specific instructions on HOW to incubate your eggs, because different incubators may not include all of the same features. I also learned that depending on the type of egg, hatching could take anywhere from 10-75 days! So, please ask a local farmer or someone that raises chickens to find out just how long you should expect your hatch to take.

If you are near to Kittanning, PA the farm that we rented from is Freehling Farms:
