Chick Hatching Club

For the past month 1st-3rd grade students in Swanson's Chick Hatching Club have been meeting after school to learn about chickens, embryology, and to care for the chicken eggs. This week we are extremely excited as our chicks should begin to hatch! Please feel free to check in on them and see how they are doing!
