What came first, the chicken or the egg?

This past week Jasper High School ALS class hatched chicks to watch how it happens, and learn about how they grow. Several students had picked out a chick that they wanted and all watched them walk around and try to eat. Sydney Gehlhausen was worried that one chick wasn’t able to walk but Mr. Helming said that it was only because the chick was exhausted from hatching.

The class was very excited to show the little chicks off, and point out how many males and females they had. At the time they had 3 females and 4 males. Not all eggs were hatched so that number will have changed. Soon, they’re hatching ducks as well! Once the chicks are able to be on their own they’ll be going to their new home with Chloe Parr.
