One of the most memorable experiences I had as a young person was attending the Poultry Embryology class at Rock Eagle 4-H Camp.
We opened eggs to study embryos, learned about incubators and even dyed just-about-to-hatch chicks blue and red.
School children get little more information on bird biology beyond eating deviled eggs.
Whether you are a teacher or an adventuresome parent, you can easily hatch baby chicks and create memories for a lifetime.
I’ve written a short guide to the whole process, including preparations, tips, and egg sources.
Here are some more Incubation Tips.

You can buy an incubator or you can build your own.
