Our Egg Centre

Our eggs have arrived and our chicken coop has been removed
because a disadvantage of using cardboard is that it does wear out.
Clea, the farmer, brought us four different kinds of eggs.
The colours are wonderful and varied.
As I put each kind in the incubator the children counted them.
The largest egg is the Copper Maran (dark brown)
and the smallest is the Leghorn.
It will be interesting to see the difference in size of chicks.
We talked about the incubator that keeps the eggs warm and moist.
 Then we used a calendar to predict when they should start hatching;
in about three weeks.
While we wait we will watch and play.
