Discover life inside an egg. Join us as we check on the progress of our chicks. We will use a process called candling to view the growth and development of the embryos inside the eggs. Appropriate for all ages. No registration required.

I had never seen a chick being born. Even when I was a young child living with my parents (and we had a chicken coop in the backyard), my only contact was when I was feeding them or gathering eggs. There was never a situation where I got to see a chick being born. I’m kind of sad about that now. To have the responsibility of making sure that the right conditions were met and that eggs were being properly taken care of to ensure birth would have been a wonderful life lesson for me.
